Finding Your NICHE
Chesapeake Regional is dedicated to improving health care for older adults. To help ensure optimal care for all of our older patients, we have partnered with NICHE (Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders). This leading, nurse-driven program strives to improve hospital care for older adults by changing the culture of health care facilities and shifting the focus toward sensitive and exemplary care.
Through this program, shared knowledge and state of the art training and tools allow for health care professionals to take an active role in advancing the care of older adults, leading to improved clinical outcomes, enhanced competency and greater patient, family and staff satisfaction. NICHE also encourages helping local communities and assists with efforts to serve the community around us, no matter the age.
