- What is an Inpatient Specialist? Inpatient specialists are physicians specifically trained in caring for patients while they are in the hospital. They manage and coordinate inpatient care, and coordinate with the patient's primary care provider when necessary.
- How does an Inpatient Specialist know your needs? Inpatient Specialists work closely with a patient’s own primary care physician while a patient is in the hospital from admission to discharge. They perform examinations, make diagnoses, order tests, and treatments, prescribe medications, develop aftercare plans and oversee the patient’s general hospital care.
