One Call Access

Reid’s responsibility

  • The One Call Access nurse will contact a hospitalist or specialist for admission as indicated if the referring provider will not be the attending to the patient in the hospital. A conference call will be arranged so the referring provider and accepting provider can discuss the referral.
  • The One Call Access nurse will work with Patient Placement to arrange a bed once the admission has been accepted and will return to a call within 10 minutes to the transferring office or facility sending the patient for admission.

Patient follow up

  • Discharge summaries will be sent to the patient's physician. Upon discharge, patients are referred to their primary care physician for continued care.
