An Everett Clinic Neurohospitalist will help you if you are in the hospital and have an altered mental status, or other nervous system disorder. Everett Clinic physicians who are board certified in neurology see patients at Providence Regional Medical Center Everett.
They will work closely with one another and your physician to make sure your needs are met and you receive the highest quality of care in the hospital and after your stay. If you have a neurologist, they do not typically come into the hospital, but trust your care to the neurohospitalist already there.
During Your Hospital Stay
You will receive care from the neurohospitalist, who is on call each day. You may see more than one neurohospitalist during your stay depending on the schedule.
Your neurohospitalist(s) will:
- Visit you daily, if there are acute issues
- Interpret and follow up on tests
- Communicate with you and your family
When You Leave the Hospital
After you are discharged, you will return to the care of your primary care physician and your outpatient neurologist (if you have one). Your primary care physician will typically get a copy of the admission notes, discharge summary, and a copy of the consultation note that is dictated by the neurohospitalist.
