Weekdays & Weeknights Call (Mon.-Thurs.): ~ 1 in 10 weeknights. Weekday call is taken one day at a time, 7 a.m. to 7 a.m. You have regular clinic office hours on call days.  Redlands Community Hospital (RCH) Nursery calls you for any new babies or problems with any babies born during the day.  After clinic office schedule is over, the on-call physician rounds ONLY on  the babies born  during the day. 5 p.m.-7 a.m. call is taken by phone, assisted by Nurse Advice Unit which screens all incoming calls when out-patient offices are closed, and 3 Beaver Urgent Care Centers (open 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. 365 days a year).  The on-call Pediatrician answers newborn hospital questions and   triages calls from the Nurse Advice Unit, Urgent Care or Redlands Community Hospital ER (typically 0-5 calls per night).  

 

Weekends Call (Friday 7 a.m.- Monday 7 a.m.): ~1 in 10 weekends. Weekend call involves hospital newborn rounds on Saturday and Sunday. Saturdays9-12 a.m. there is a Pediatric Weekend Clinic at the Redlands Oasis office, which is very close to the hospital. Patients are scheduled for this clinic, it is not walk-in.  All weekend phone calls from patients go to our Nurse Advice Unit first.  You are only called for newborn hospital questions and complex or unusual outpatient calls that Nurse Advice Unit can’t handle without back-up.    

 

Rounding at RCH Nursery/NICU: About 1 in 10 weeks (Monday-Friday) you round on all babies born at RCH.  During your week of hospital rounds, your clinic schedule is blocked from 8am to 2pm.  You will see clinic patients from 2-5pm.   RCH has a busy obstetrical service and NICU, supported by a Neonatologist team of physicians.  C-Sections are attended by the NICU team, NOT Pediatricians.    All babies needing IVs, IV antibiotics, or monitors are admitted to NICU and can be followed with or without RCH Neonatologists’ team, depending upon your privileges and preferences.  The RCH Neonatologists are always available to answer questions, do consults, or take over management of any patients if you are not comfortable.  There is a standing hospital protocol for them to automatically manage small preemies and babies with known problems.
