Consult Process

When patients are dealing with a severe illness or injury, often, they need to see a specialist. In these cases, the primary doctor will put in a consultation, or "consult," order. But what happens next?

Well, it can be nerve-wracking to call in the consult for the first time. The good news is that it's a straightforward process. Once you see the order, simply go to the patient's record and add the requested doctor to their list. Jot down important information like the name of the doctor you'll be calling, their specialty, and the patient's information. This way, you're organized and prepared when the doctor calls back.

And don't worry; after a few consults, you'll feel like a pro!
