Obtaining Coverage

If you leave town or cannot be contacted for > 12 hours on a weekday, you are expected to sign out to another provider in the clinic and notify the nursing staff at 744-5113. Providers do not typically sign out on weekends, although, if you have a patient at Bailey or another institution you should inform them of your plans and who is covering for you. All nursing facilities have a medical director who can be contacted if the primary provider is not available but it is always preferable to have the primary provider or their designate field questions and problems. The AIDS Medcon service also provides back-up coverage when the primary provider cannot be reached.

Some providers choose not to arrange coverage and plan to be available by cell phone or pager. If you do so, please ensure that you are within pager/mobile range & inform the staff accordingly -- if you are not within range or are not sure whether you will be, please sign out to another provider.
