Inpatient Hospitalist Service is designed to give patients personalized attention during their hospitalization and to provide a physician presence to address patients’ needs 24 hours a day.
Hospitalist is the term used for doctors who are specialized in the care of patients in the hospital.
There are many advantages of Hospitalists in the care of hospitalized patients. One advantage is that Hospitalists have more experience and expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis. They are also more available most of the day in the hospital to meet with family members, able to follow up on tests, answer nurses questions, and simply deal with problems that may arise.
In many instances, Hospitalists may see a patient more than once a day to assure that care is going according to plan, and to explain test findings to patients and family members.
Reasons for Hospitalists include:
efficiency in care
offers a complete interdisciplinary care plan with patient’s surgeons and other specialists
patient safety and continuity
cost effective for hospitals and patient’s insurance companies
Hospitalists have the qualifications to render the optimal care patients need during their hospital stay.
