Abstract :

Combined care of adult and pediatric inpatient epilepsy patients can improve the quality of care. Montefiore Medical Center in New York, NY, opened an all-age epilepsy unit in 1991. Nursing staff, specialists in the care of epilepsy patients, practice independently along with neurologists, psychologists, pharmacists and other practitioners. The unit encourages families to stay with patients, and care can be individualized to patients independent of any chronological age limitations.
