Admitting Hospitalist Role Scope
The advanced practitioner admitting hospitalist assists in the department of Hospital Medicine to provide direct medical care to patients requiring hospitalization. They chart medical history, assess health status, diagnose any potential issues, and work with physicians and other health professionals to provide high-quality care. Admitting hospitalists receive referrals for admission from the ED and perform H+Ps and write admitting orders for most of the admissions, except for CCU (critical care unit) patients. They would give a verbal sign out to the accepting Hospitalist before leaving, helping to distribute the admissions by unit based guidelines. They could also, with agreement from the accepting hospitalist, write brief “holding orders” and leave the full H+P and evaluation to the accepting hospitalist, or distribute admissions to other hospitalists if unable to fully evaluate all of the referred admissions. Additional responsibilities may include procedures such as central lines and paracentesis/thoracentesis.
