Call Schedule

Call is shared equally among all psychiatrists who work at the Medical Center. During the week, each physician covers calls for their patients each day of the week from 8am to 5pm. At 5pm, the on call physician will take all phone calls from the ED. The ED is very good at working up the patient prior to contacting the physician. After 10pm, the ED will call approximately every two hours to advise the on call psychiatrist of any patient admissions for them to see the next day. If we have psychiatrists who need additional patients, we advise the ED to directly admit them to their service.

Starting in 2013, we will have a PA in ED after hours to assist in the initial assessment of the patient, which should make the on call psychiatrist’ next day a bit easier since more information was gathered the night before. The NP will still consult with the on call psychiatrist prior to admitting a patient. Several physicians shared with us that it was very uncommon to have to come in to the ED to admit a patient after hours. The leadership shared with us that in 17 years of practice he has come in after hours 3 times. We have very good support from our surgeons and subspecialties, which helps deliver the high level of care.
