Emergency Rooms for Seniors

Training and Special Equipment

A hospital just outside Washington, D.C. has created a special ER unit for seniors. As Alyne Ellis reports, the staff is trained to recognize typical issues, and they have some simple, but specific, equipment to aid their work.

Dr. Bill Thomas, a renowned gerontologist, is our guide. More from Dr. Thomas in this conversation with Mike Cuthbert.

Learn more about the unit at Holy Cross Hospital.
