Webinar: Bringing nighttime coverage to the ED with a telehospitalist program

Nighttime coverage is vital to patient outcomes, nursing satisfaction, and the financial performance of a hospital, considering many see more than 60% of ED patients between the hours of 7:00 PM and midnight. Even when a hospitalist is on-site at night, hospitals can often struggle to match staffing to demand and prevent a backlog of admissions waiting for the daytime team.

Listen to Pita Nims, RN, MN, Providence St. Joseph Health (PSJH) Clinical Program Manager and Brandon Ong, MD, MPH, Swedish Hospital Medicine, discuss how PSJH implemented a nighttime 7PM–7AM telehospitalist program in 2014, which now covers six facilities across three states.
