SHMG hospitalist physicians provide dedicated inpatient medical care, working with your outpatient provider to ensure the best care possible while you are admitted to the hospital. You may see a variety of consulting physicians, such as a cardiologist, nephrologist, or gastroenterologist, all while under the care of an SHMG hospitalist. Your SHMG hospitalist will keep your outpatient primary care provider well informed of your stay. If your care plan includes a transition to a Rehabilitation or Skilled Nursing Facility, a SHMG physician will continue to follow your care in those settings, ensuring a safe, thorough transition of care.
Committed to excellent patient care from admission to discharge, SHMG hospitalists see you every day while you are admitted to the hospital and are available to meet your inpatient care needs 24/7.
In order to ensure safe transitions of care, if you or your loved one is discharged to an acute rehab or skilled nursing facility (‘SNF’), your SHMG hospitalist will follow you there post-discharge, and prior to discharge home (for a list of SNF’s followed by an SHMG hospitalist, please contact your social worker).
Home Care Services
For specific patients who meet medical necessity, SHMG hospitalists will conduct a post-discharge follow-up at patients’ homes to ensure safe transition to your home environment. Working closely with the top home health companies in the LA area, SHMG can be helpful in arranging the safest environment for you or your loved one to recover.
