Cody Regional Health Hospitalists
Your Primary Provider During Your Hospital Stay
A hospitalist is a primary physician who works exclusively in the hospital.
Your primary care provider will likely not have the time to manage all
aspects of your care while you are staying at the hospital, so instead
they work closely with our hospitalist team to coordinate your care and
ensure all of your needs are met. You may work with several medical professionals
during your time at the hospital, but all services will be coordinated
through the hospitalist.
Working With Your Primary Care Physician
Your primary care provider, if you have one, will be notified of your admission
to the hospital and provided with contact information for your assigned
hospitalist. The hospitalist keeps your physician informed on updates
regarding your care, ensuring they are caught up on any and all developments
in your condition.
Working with a hospitalist comes with several advantages:
- Hospitalists are available on-site in the hospital 24/7.
- Hospitalists know the various services and professionals working in the
hospital, allowing them to better coordinate patient care.
- Patients can reach out to the hospitalist for any questions or concerns,
including questions they may have for other professionals that treated
them during their hospital stay.
- A hospitalist will be able to visit with a patient at least once per day.
- Hospitalists can prescribe medications, order tests, and arrange for additional
services as patients require them.
