F.F. Thompson Hospital has achieved designation as a NICHE hospital. NICHE stands for Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders and is the only national designation indicating a hospital’s commitment to elder care excellence.
“Currently, 65% of the inpatient population our hospital cares for is 65 years or older,” says Vice President of Patient Care Services/Chief Nursing Officer Hazel Robertshaw. “Whether they are aware of Thompson’s NICHE designation or not, the older adults treated in the hospital will recognize that they are in a place where their care team will pay close attention to every detail of their condition.”
