Jackson General Hospitalist
How We Communicate With the Primary Care Provider
During the patient's hospitalization, the hospitalist will supervise the patient's care and consult with the primary care provider about the patient's treatment as needed.
When the patient is discharged from the hospital, the hospitalist will refer the patient back to their primary care provider. Any questions or concerns after discharge including medication refills should be directed to the primary care provider. The primary care provider will have access to all of the records obtained during the patient's hospitalization.
