Rigid abdomen? Blasts on the blood smear?....How do I call a successful consult?
Taking care of a complicated patient in the hospital often requires calling in the expertise of a consulting service. Your patient may need specialist input with a diagnostic workup or treatment, such as an infectious diseases specialist, or for procedural or interventional assistance, such as a general surgeon, gastroenterologist, or interventional radiologist. A successful relationship with a consulting service begins with a thoughtful consult question. How best can this team help you care for your patient? Come participate in a discussion with experts, including residents and fellows from other specialties, who can help answer your questions. Learn the language and lingo of an array of specialities to improve patient care.
