Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of Sibley’s hospitalist service?
Hospitalists are inside the hospital 24 hours a day to provide patient-centered care, answer questions, adjust your treatment plan and respond to medical emergencies. Additionally, they are familiar with Sibley’s systems, services and staff leading to a more responsive experience for you and your family.
How do Hospitalists work with my primary care physician?
Sibley hospitalists work with your primary care physician from admission through discharge.
A hospitalist will contact your physician immediately after you are admitted to: inform them of your medical condition, learn about your recent medical problems and obtain pertinent medical history. While at Sibley, your physician will be updated daily on your condition. If you require a consultation from a specialist, hospitalists will refer your care to a specialist recommended by your physician. At discharge, hospitalists will send your physician complete medical summaries to ensure a smooth continuation of care.
Will I see more than one hospitalist?
Yes, it’s possible. Our hospitalists work as a team. Before every shift-change, the hospitalists convene to review your medical history, current condition and treatment plan to ensure a smooth continuation of care.
