    The American Hospital Association (AHA) has released two new age-friendly resources, a case study and podcast, highlighting the work of Sharp Grossmont Hospital. The new resources highlight how an interdisciplinary team at Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa, California, has integrated age-friendly care in its busy emergency department. Using the 4Ms framework — what matters to patients, medications, mentation and mobility — the hospital has improved health care and outcomes for older adult patients, decreased readmissions and improved job satisfaction and retention of nurses, among other results. Sharp Grossmont Hospital, part of Sharp HealthCare, received the Age-Friendly Health Systems “Committed to Care Excellence” designation in 2023 and is certified by the Geriatric Emergency Department Accreditation (GEDA) program as a Gold Level 1 facility. The Advancing Health podcast episode features a conversation with Julie Dye, clinical nurse specialist in geriatrics at Sharp Grossmont Hospital, and Marie Cleary-Fishman, director of clinical quality at AHA.
