Savannah area client seeks 2 hospitalists for this Georgia Health System. They have 20 hospitalists and 1 allied health professionals. The shifts and average daily census differs at each campus. The responsibilities of the night hospitalists are to do admits/consults and patient calls on patients. Average admits for day and night is between 0-10 and admits are only adults. There is a courtesy in the switch over that is handled between the doctors. If an admit comes in at 4:55 and the night call starts at 5:00 then technically it is the day person’s admit. This seems to work out as their doctors’ have a very good working relationship with open communication.
