What’s up with the hospital these days?

Medical care is continually changing. And that includes going to the hospital. If you have to go the hospital please remember the following points.

  • stay with your doctorIf you are going to the Emergency Room please call us immediately and let us know you are going. Be sure to talk directly to Dr. Rizzo or one of the Nurse Practitioners. That way we can offer guidance and keep a look out for you.
  • When at the Emergency Room, be vocal – let them know we are your Primary Care Provider so that we can take care of you in the hospital. By law, you have a right to choose your doctors. But if you don’t let hospital know who your doctor is you may be assigned to a random doctor or hospitalist who does not know you.
  • To be a direct admit (go straight to the hospital floor instead of through the ER), it’s hospital policy and insurance requirements that you must have been seen by a physician within the previous 24 hours. (Except for scheduled procedures.) We can usually manage this kind of admission if you are seen in the office.
