Elderly woman using walker in care centerAug. 30, 2016 - Are America’s hospitals prepared to meet the needs of the senior citizens? Kaiser Health News finds they can be hazardous places for elderly patients, who are at increased risk of falling, drug-induced injury and confusion.

Kaiser Health News visited hospitals around the country, reviewed data and interviewed dozens of patients, family members and health providers to document the extent of the problem and highlight possible solutions.

But as the nation’s senior population grows, many facilities are ill-equipped to address their unique needs. The findings have motivated the news service to begin a series of reports on the problems they are finding.

SeniorJournal.com, too, has become increasingly concerned about the care of elderly patients in hospitals and also nursing homes and other care facilities that promote their services to older Americans.
