Geriatrics


Patient care services are based at Queen Mary Hospital (QMH), Fung Yiu King Hospital (FYKH), Grantham Hospital (GH) and the Hong Kong West Community Geriatrics Service. In QMH, the acute geriatric beds are located in the general medical wards. Through a multi-dimensional assessment, elderly patients are screened out for multi-disciplinary geriatric management. The beds under the Comprehensive Care Programme for Elderly (CCPE) are located in two designated medical wards. Older patients at high risk of hospital readmission are recruited from A&E Department to the CCPE beds where protocol-based care and discharge planning takes place. Under the Integrated Care and Discharge Support (ICDS) and Integrated Discharge Support Programme (IDSP) program, high risk elderly patients during their admission to medical wards are also screened in order to provide for a well-coordinated discharge planning and community support service.

TWGHs Fung Yiu King Hospital provides convalescent, rehabilitation and infirmary services. A geriatric day hospital has been in operation since January 1996. Grantham Hospital provides geriatric subacute and rehabilitation services for geriatric patients.
