After Hours Care
The patient receives verbal and written information which
explains how to contact the physician, if needed, after
hours. Scheduled physician or physician designee contact
with the patient on a post-surgical basis i.e., post
operative call back will occur via telephone at the location
the patient has given as his/her place of recovery.
Should the physician wish for the patient to be seen as a
result of any post-surgical telephone contact, the patient
will be sent to the nearest emergency room or other facility
of the physician's choice.
Documentation of this occurrence will be described in the
patient's medical record with 24 hours.
