Hospital Avoidance Program
As healthcare has continued to reorganize in the outpatient arena, Metro Infectious Disease Consultants has structured a new Hospital Avoidance Program.
This allows patients the option to receive care that had previously only been available in the inpatient setting. Through the utilization of this program, referring physicians may send the patient to a Metro Infectious Disease Consultants office rather than the emergency room or hospital.
With same day service, the Hospital Avoidance Program provides rapid-response evaluation and treatment for acute conditions such as cellulitis, osteomyelitis, abscesses, urinary tract infections, and more. In addition, the Metro Infectious Disease Consultants nursing staff, skilled in infusion therapy, places and maintains intravenous lines, infuses antibiotics and biologic medications.
To ensure optimal communication and minimal complications, Metro Infectious Disease Consultants provides a 24/7 access to physicians, nurses, and pharmacists. This novel program is comprehensive, cost efficient, patient and hospital friendly.
