Work Environment

Work environments are influenced by the setting in which geriatricians are employed, that is, hospitals, private offices, nursing homes, or schools, for example. Any geriatrician who works with patients, however, will practice in offices and examining rooms that are well equipped, clean, attractive, well lighted, and well ventilated. Geriatricians in private practice usually see patients by appointments that are scheduled according to individual requirements. In private offices there is usually at least one nurse-receptionist, and there may be several nurses, a laboratory technician, one or more secretaries, and a bookkeeper.
