It's a well-known secret that older patients are not always welcome in busy hospital emergency rooms where their medical problems, while real, are often not strictly emergencies.
But at Holy Cross Hospital in Maryland, seniors are now welcomed and given appropriate, quality medical care, under a new program designed by Dr. Bill Thomas. He's a leading advocate for quality elder care, and he joins host Mike Cuthbert for one of his regular visits.
Alyne Ellis also has Dr. Thomas on her Prime Time Focus program talking about these same ideas.
