NICHE Certification

Published on Sunday, September 11, 2016

In 2010 McLaren Oakland became a NICHE Certified hospital (Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders). This means that our nurses have gone through, and continue to go through, extensive training to increase their knowledge to maximize the coordination of care for our geriatric patients. The importance of this certification is to ensure that we are keeping up with the needs of our aging community members. Age sensitive care promotes optimal functioning and can help seniors to maintain independence. By combining nationally recognized models of geriatric patient care, specialized geriatric nursing care and advanced hospital technology we develop a unique program for our senior patients that promotes each the best possible outcome.
