ED Muskoka Physicians - Living the Dream

Admits turned down

If anyone has an orphan doc or family doc say that they will not accept an admission …

We have had some recent cases in both sites!!!

My suggestion is please just say ” I understand you don’t think this patient does not need to be admitted but since I do and I can’t come up with an appropriate care plan other than admitting I appreciate you coming to assess the patient and help plan alternate care”

WE ARE ALL stressed and feeling the heat …I am not trying to be mean or unprofessional…but a consistent message to our peers is why I post this.

I am not suggesting using this line for areas of care that the receiving MD may feel out of their scope ( like with internal medicine issues and we have no bloody internal medicine support again in Bracebridge) but for routine admits…

A few of us felt just some consistent scripting may be helpfull…..
