Hospitalist programs are gaining popularity throughout the United States in both rural and urban areas. A hospitalist is a medical provider responsible for patients from the time of their admittance to the hospital to the time of their release. They coordinate a patient’s care, working with nurses, physical therapists, social workers, and other staff to ensure the best possible care and the best possible communication with the patient and their family.
When it’s time to leave the hospital, the hospitalist will coordinate discharge instructions and follow up actions, like home visits, or wound care.
RAMC is pleased to offer this service. With the hospitalist program, patients and their families can rest easier knowing they have an advocate and expert to guide them through their hospital stay.
RAMC also offers support to virtual hospitalists via telemedicine.
