Strategic Planning

Geriatric Emergency Nurse (GEM) Program

The GEM nurse, in collaboration with the Emergency Department (ED) interprofessional health care team, provides advanced gerontological expertise in the care of the frail elderly seen in the ED who are at risk of suffering adverse events, loss of independence and admission to hospital or long-term care.

The GEM nurse provides gerontological expertise and targeted assessment and treatment services; enhances linkages with hospital and community services and acts as an advocate for the frail seniors they serve and where appropriate, in partnership with community resources, diverts an unnecessary in-patient admission.
