The hospitalist team will be in charge of your care and will see you every day to direct your treatment while you are in the hospital. Available to you and your family to answer questions and discuss your care, the hospitalist works at the hospital full-time to provide for your care and attend to any emergencies that may arise.
Depending on your specific needs, the hospitalist may consult other doctors to participate in your care. Patients will also have access to a multidisciplinary team of nurse practitioners and physician assistants on our allied health professional staff. In addition, nutritionists, nurses and social workers are available to address all aspects of your care, including helping with insurance matters and social service needs.
The hospitalist will coordinate arrangements for any prescriptions or care that you may need after you are discharged, such as physical therapy or home health visits. You will be asked to make an appointment with your primary care doctor, or other doctors, soon after discharge.
The hospitalist will partner and communicate with your primary care physician (PCP) who will continue to provide care after your discharge. You may contact the hospitalist after discharge if you have any questions about your hospital stay.
