The Medical Staff
The physician who admits you is responsible for directing your care while you are in the hospital. Your physician, as the coordinator for your treatment program, should be consulted if you have questions about your illness. Additionally, you may be visited during your stay by an Internal Medicine Doctor and/or a Nurse Practitioner as well as a visit by a Pain Management Professional.
