Hospitalist Program
To provide you with the best possible hospital care, the PinnacleHealth team includes hospitalists to care for our patients. A hospitalist is a physician who specializes in patient care in a hospital setting and will:
  • Manage much of your  hospital care.
  • Consult with specialists.
  • Monitor your progress.
  • Keep you, your family, your specialists and your primary care physician up to date.
 
Whiteboard
The whiteboard in your room is an important tool for keeping you up-to-date about your healthcare. Your whiteboard gives nurses and physicians a convenient place to write:
  • the name(s) of the staff caring for you,
  • your patient goals,
  • your care plans for each day
  • scheduled tests 
  • other important notes such as language preferences.
