About Gold Coast Health
About the Acute Care of the Elderly and Geriatric Assessment Unit
Acute Care for the Elderly (ACE) Unit is in the B Block on the first floor of the Robina Hospital. The unit has 28 inpatient beds and incorporates the Ortho-geriatric Service, which has 10 designated beds. The Ortho-geriatric Service is dedicated to the perioperative management of geriatric orthopaedic patients over 65 years, admitted with fractured Neck of Femur. The unit uses a geriatrician-led model of care (MOC) with orthopaedic surgeons as secondary consultants. The model is operationalised using a multidisciplinary approach with specialised medical, nursing and allied health staff. This model is internationally regarded as the best practice MOC for the elderly person with a fractured NOF and supports a reduction in length of stay, incidence of delirium and postoperative complications.
GCH is committed to attracting the right people for our organisation. To help us with this we have developed a Core Capability Framework which defines the skills and behaviours required to perform successfully as an organisation.
