Patients may be referred to the Hospitalist Group through admission from the Emergency Department, by transferring out of the intensive care unit or by their private physician. Once the patient is admitted, hospitalists remain in close contact with everyone involved in the child's medical care. Because they are available 24 hours a day, your child might see more than one hospitalist during his or her stay. Occasionally, medical students or residents may accompany the hospitalists as they see patients.
Hospitalists help patients and families move toward discharge by following up on tests, adjusting treatments and monitoring progress. They offer families the necessary time to ask questions and discuss options. Because our hospitalists remain on site, they can respond quickly to any emergency, help patients transfer out of intensive care settings and shorten the overall time spent in the medical center.
