UCSF Geriatric Inpatient Services

A hospitalization is often associated with fear and uncertainty for older adults and their families.  The geriatric medicine inpatient team works along with hospital admitting services to enhance the care for older adults.  Our team members are leaders in geriatric medicine acute care who are continuously seeking to improve older patients’ hospital experience and health outcomes.  We provide education, promote shared medical decision-making and goals of care conversations, and work collaboratively to optimize care transitions.
