Our patients deserve extraordinary
We believe our patients deserve the best, which is why we work hard to provide outstanding care to our community. Awards don’t tell the whole story of Touro’s Senior Care, but we’re very proud to be recognized by industry leaders that set the bar for quality senior care.
NICHE trained care team
Touro’s Senior Care program is a member of Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders (NICHE). NICHE provides education resources and evaluation tools for nursing teams and promotes excellent care for older adults. Our NICHE membership indicates that our staff has received specialty training to care for senior patients, ensuring you receive the very best care.
Accredited senior emergency care
Touro’s Emergency Department has earned the Geriatric Emergency Department Accreditation (GEDA) from the American College of Emergency Physicians. Touro was the first hospital in Louisiana to earn this distinction which is the highest level of its kind. The Senior Emergency Care program provides geriatric trained physicians and nurses, and enhanced emergency room features designed to care for patients over the age of 65.
