NEW COLLABORATIVE PROGRAM WITH THE PEDIATRIC HOSPITALIST AT THE CHILTON HOSPITAL.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE REACH OUT TO THE OFFICE.

Beginning on March 9th, PediatriCare Associates will be transferring the inpatient care of all of our pediatric patients that are admitted at The Chilton Medical Center to the Pediatric Hospitalist Service. This will not affect our direct care of newborns or babies admitted to the Special Care Nursery.

The Hospitalist Service will be admitting our patients, directing the day-to-day care and providing all discharge information and instructions. Nationally this has been shown to improve the care of inpatients and raise the level of satisfaction of parents.  The use of the Hospitalist Service allows for minute-to-minute decisions to be made while your child is hospitalized.  Moreover, the Pediatric Hospitalists are in the hospital and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Pediatric Hospitalists are Board Certified pediatricians that specialize in the care of hospitalized infants, children and young adults. They will aid in the coordination of care regarding other specialists during the hospitalization and will work closely with our practice to provide the comprehensive and personalized care that you expect from PediatriCare Associates.  In fact, this is presently the model of inpatient care that we follow with our hospitalized children at The Hackensack University Medical Center. 

It is important to note, however, that we will continue to visit all hospitalized children during their stay in the hospital, as well as receive daily updates and a complete summary upon discharge. 

This is just one more step in completing our certification for designation as a Pediatric-Centered Medical Home, (PCMH), which is a way of organizing primary care that emphasizes improved care coordination and communication to transform primary care into "what patients and parents want it to be."

If you have any questions regarding this decision, please reach out to our office.

Sincerely:

PediatriCare Associates

WINTER UPDATE:

What to Wear

* Dress infants and children warmly for outdoor activities. Several thin layers will keep them dry and warm. Clothing for children should consist of thermal long johns, turtlenecks, one or two shirts, pants, sweater, coat, warm socks, boots, gloves or mittens, and a hat.

* The rule of thumb for older babies and young children is to dress them in one more layer of clothing than an adult would wear in the same conditions.... continued
