NICHE

Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders
Hurley Medical Center is proud to be designated a NICHE site—the only national designation indicating a hospital’s commitment to elder care excellence. This designation signals our commitment to providing patient- and family-centered care for older adults. Through our participation in the NICHE program, we are able to offer evidenced-based practice and interdisciplinary approaches that promote positive experiences for the older adults in our care. Our elder care protocols focus on fall prevention, reduction in restraint use, pain management, appropriate use of medication, wound care, dementia care, and addressing patient and family concerns, such as Advance Directives. The NICHE program was implemented in 2008 and has lead to greatly improved outcomes and greater satisfaction rates for geriatric patients and families.
