A few questions about the Geriatric Nursing role in the ER: (1) Does your geriatric nurse have a specific role in medication reconciliation? (2) What sort of tool (such as ISAR) are you using at triage in your ER to identify seniors at risk?
The issue I have with ISAR is that there are no questions in the tool relating to falls/mobility. The 4 M’s include mentation, mobility, medications, and matters most. The tool to identify seniors at risk should include a specific component that asks about mobility. What are your thoughts on this?
