Hospital Care Q & A

Internal Medicine & Pediatric Clinic

What is Hospital Care?

Hospital care refers to the medical services and treatments you receive at a hospital. The experienced team at Internal Medicine & Pediatric Clinic offers a variety of hospital services from the convenience of their office. These services are designed to improve your experience and provide convenient, affordable medical care, in some cases eliminating the need to visit a hospital.

However, not everything can be handled in-office, and for that reason, several team members maintain an in-patient practice at Baptist Memorial Hospital. They ensure you receive coordinated care whether in the office, at the hospital or recovering at home.

What are the Available Hospital Services?

The team at Internal Medicine & Pediatric Clinic offers in-office X-rays, EKGs, stitches and suturing, and lesion removal procedures. They also provide extensive diagnostics and testing. If your exam and tests identify a disease that requires more advanced treatment and hospitalization, your provider refers you to their in-hospital practice at Baptist Memorial Hospital.

What Happens if I Need to Go to the Hospital?

If you need hospital care, your provider makes a referral and gives you instructions to make an appointment at their in-hospital practice. You check in at the hospital, complete any paperwork, and provide your insurance information.

Your doctor meets you at the hospital and explains exactly what you can expect during your hospital care. They will tell you in advance if you should have to stay overnight or if you can go home after your procedure. They also provide information about whether you need to avoid eating and drinking before your hospital appointment.

How Do I Know if I Should Go to the Hospital?

If you notice persistent symptoms that don’t subside with rest and time, you should schedule a sick visit with a provider at Internal Medicine & Pediatric Clinic. If they diagnose a condition that needs advanced care, they will refer you to their practice at Baptist Memorial Hospital. Similarly, your provider will also refer you to their hospital practice if your annual wellness exam reveals a condition that requires hospital care.

If you or your child experiences an emergency medical situation, such as a severe bone fracture, fever over 104 degrees, chest pain, or an inability to breathe, you should call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room immediately.
