  • The GENESIS Program

  • There are characteristics unique to aging that, when combined with normal aging changes can make the elder more vulnerable to complications when hospitalized. Delirium, sleep deprivation, immobility and cascade iatrogenesis can all lead to functional decline in the elder. The proposal was designed to utilize an interdisciplinary approach for early recognition and appropriate interventions to decrease the potential for complications and maintain functional capacity in this patient population.

    The original proposal evolved over time into the GENESIS Project (promoting Geriatric-friendly Environment through Nursing Evaluation and Specific Interventions for Successful healing). This project involves a three-pronged approach which involves education, environmental changes and the use of protocols.
