AlertMD On-Call number for Psychiatry: 815-206-3437
Effective Wednesday, September 13, 2017
There is no single point of access to contact the scheduled on-call Psychiatric Provider. At times, there is confusion around who is on-call for which service, which results in delayed responses.
The Psychiatric Provider team manages multiple call lists for the ED, med floors, and inpatient behavioral health unit. Schedules are distributed across departments but become quickly outdated as schedules change.
A single point of access is required to ensure a caller can access the correct Psychiatric
Provider within a timely fashion.
Utilize the Center and AlertMD to establish a single access point; populating the schedule behind the scenes to ensure each caller is accessing the most up to date on-call schedule and Provider resource.
Medical Providers, Nurses, and Care Coordinators serving patients on the Medical floors will be able to access the Psychiatric Provider by calling 815-206-3437.
After dialing this number, you will hear three options:
- If you are calling from the ER, please press 1
- If you are calling from a Medical Floor, please press 2
- If you are calling from the Inpatient Behavioral health floor, please press 3
Once you make your selection, you will be greeted by the operator. The operator will page the psychiatrist on call through Alert MD. The Psychiatrist has 15 minutes to respond. If they do not respond, the operator will page again.
Please contact Susan Yerkes with any issues. (815)334-5582 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
