ACEP has launched the Geriatric Emergency Department Accreditation Program (GEDA). GEDA recognizes that one-size ED care does not fit all patients. Older people in the emergency department have presentations, needs, dispositions, and outcomes that are specific to their age group. A geriatric emergency department may be either a separate space designated for older adults or, more likely, will integrate best practices for older adults into ED operations. Learn more about the program.
