Saint Agnes Associates News & Updates

900 Caton Avenue, Baltimore, Md.  21229 /

| http://www.stagnes.org/ |

Saint Agnes is proud to announce that we will open a new Senior Emergency Department on June 17, 2015, to improve the delivery of care to more than 8,000 senior adults who visit Saint Agnes’ ED each year. The first specialized Senior ED to open in Baltimore and only the second in the state of Maryland, the Senior Emergency Department was developed with a focus on efficient design and construction, enhanced staff training and an improved experience tailored to the physical, psychological and social needs of the aging population.

The Senior Emergency Department consists of seven private rooms, a centralized nursing station, and medication and nutrition alcoves that are in close proximity to patients. It was designed to decrease negative stimuli and meet needs that are specific to the aging population:

  • Noise: To decrease noise level, which can make it harder for elderly patients to understand discharge instructions, the Senior Emergency Department will be separated from the Main ED.
  • Falls: To reduce the risk of falls, handrails and floors that prevent missteps will be incorporated throughout the department.
  • Poor eyesight: To improve visual orientation, softer paint colors will be incorporated into the rooms and the lighting levels will be adjusted.
  • Comfort: To enhance comfort, blanket warmers will be available and thicker mattresses will be in each of the exam rooms to reduce pressure on frail bones.
  • Two-way communication: To improve communication and hearing, pocket talkers and pillow speakers will be in each of the rooms.

The Senior Emergency Department also has a designated social worker and a partnership with the pharmacy to review prescriptions of patients who are on multiple medications.

The emergency department staff, which are already highly trained in their field, including specialized care for pediatric and chest pain patients, went through a rigorous training session on the complexity of senior care. The staff learned about screening tools, geriatric syndromes, ageism, discrimination and other lifestyle and medical concerns that affect the aging population, with the ultimate goals of improving patient satisfaction, decreasing admissions, providing a seamless transition back to the home and enhancing care management for elderly patients throughout the entire ED.

Coming on the heels of the hospital’s new patient-centered medical home in Saint Agnes Medical Group, Catonsville, the Senior Emergency Department was also  built around the patient-centered model. In collaboration with the Erickson School of Aging Studies at UMBC, Saint Agnes designed a team-based approach to diagnosis, counseling, treatment and follow-up of elder patients. The Senior Emergency Department is also implementing new care processes that include screening patients for issues such as depression, in-home safety, elder abuse and delirium.

The Senior Emergency Department was made possible through the support of the Attman and Powers families, the Raskob Foundation for Catholic Activities, and a partnership with the Erickson School of Aging Studies at UMBC.

We look forward to providing a new level of care to this important population in our region.

Public Talk: Living in the Moment with Kadam Lucy James
Thursday, August 20 @ 7:30pm – 8:45pm

KMC Maryland, 900 E. Northern Parkway, Baltimore, MD 21212

This public talk is open to everyone. People like to say we should live in the moment. But what does that actually mean? According to Buddha’s liberating teaching on subtle impermanence, the moment is all there really is! This profound insight cracks open our customary way of looking at our lives…in the best possible way. Even a glimpse of subtle impermanence brings with it a letting go of our usual grasping at what we consider to be our problems and our limitations. It frees us to fully embrace every moment of our lives.

Everyone is welcome!

Cost: Donation-based. Anything you are able & willing to donate is much appreciated!

This course is perfect for those curious about or interested in increasing their practice Action Tantra or Highest Yoga Tantra

15 Million Reasons to Walk…

The FARE Walk for Food Allergy, presented by Mylan Specialty L.P., raises critical funds and awareness each year to create a safer, more inclusive world for the 15 million Americans with food allergies, including all those at risk for life-threatening anaphylaxis. This year, tens of thousands of people will gather at walks in nearly 60 communities nationwide to support their loved ones, friends, co-workers and neighbors living with life-threatening food allergies.

Benefitting Food Allergy Research & Education, the FARE Walk for Food Allergy offers fun activities for the entire family while helping to advance food allergy research, education, advocacy and awareness initiatives. Register and give today as an individual, or start a team and invite your friends, family and co-workers to fundraise so that one day we can say FAREwell to food allergies!

ABOUT FARE
Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) works on behalf of the 15 million Americans with food allergies, including all those at risk for life-threatening anaphylaxis. This potentially deadly disease affects 1 in every 13 children in the U.S. – or roughly two in every classroom. FARE’s mission is to improve the quality of life and the health of individuals with food allergies, and to provide them hope through the promise of new treatments. Our work is organized around three core tenets: LIFE – support the ability of individuals with food allergies to live safe, productive lives with the respect of others through our education and advocacy initiatives; HEALTH – enhance the healthcare access of individuals with food allergies to state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment; and HOPE – encourage and fund research in both industry and academia that promises new therapies to improve the allergic condition.  For more information, please visit www.foodallergy.org and find us on  Twitter@FoodAllergy, Facebook, YouTube and Pinterest.

The event is part of an ongoing national conversation on the importance of the humanities in education and in America. Speakers and breakout session panelists will explore why the humanities were relevant when NEH was created in 1965 and why the humanities continue to be relevant, if not more so, today.
