When You’re in the Hospital
To provide you with the very best care during your hospital stay at Rome Health, your primary care physician has entrusted a hospitalist from St. Joseph's Hospital to be your “in-hospital” doctor.
Hospitalists are physicians who work solely in the hospital and are available throughout your stay to talk with you and your family about your care and treatment.
In case of emergency, your hospitalist is never very far. That’s because he or she works only in the hospital and will see you more than once a day if needed. Hospitalists expedite your care by following up on tests and adjusting your treatment regimen throughout the day based on those test results.
At the time of your admission to the hospital, the hospitalist will review your medical records and may contact your primary care physician to discuss your condition. During the course of your hospitalization, the hospitalist and primary care physician may talk further regarding your treatment, and at discharge, the hospitalist will communicate with your primary care physician to discuss your further treatment needs, help arrange follow-up care, and prescribe the necessary medications.
Your primary care physician will have access to all your records following your stay.
