Geriatric Unit – Since 2004, a team of geriatric assessment has been operating successfully. The goal of geriatric assessment is to maintain the maximum functional status of a patient/client and his ability to cope independently. A comprehensive geriatric assessment has proven to be an effective and cost-saving opportunity for solving problems of people with multiple problems and coping deficiency (mostly of the elderly).
We work in contemporary conditions and use modern medical technology. Friendly and attentive attitude towards patients, family members and colleagues is the number one priority in our daily activities.
The Internal Disease Clinic is a popular learning base for future healthcare employees (doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, social workers, caregivers). For many years patients have been receiving heart simulators from Pärnu Hospital and the Internal Disease Clinic has been conducting further monitoring of patients. Intensive care wards in internal disease departments I and II use contemporary patient monitoring and telemetry system.
