In-patient Call
We have two Family Medicine inpatient services at RMC for which the residency program provides 24/7 in-house coverage. Each inpatient service consists of 4 team members - two interns, one second year, and one third year RIC (Resident In Charge). The in-house on call residents are responsible for new admissions, care of patients on each team, and emergency phone calls from the FM clinic patients. Our residency also has a night-float team which provides coverage Sunday through Friday night - meaning we only have one night of call (Saturday) to cover. Each medicine night float team has two residents in-house: one second year, and one third year acting in a supervisory role. There is ample support for the residents on call - with the in-house 3rd year, faculty can be reached by Phone anytime, and Emergency Department physicians on-site 24hrs a day.

     Short call:

     Covers until 7 pm by residents on in-patient (the interns cover 2 evenings a week and 2nd years cover one evening, third years    

     alternate evenings to cover supervisory role)


     Overnight call:

     (7 pm to 8 am): Sunday through Friday night are covered by the night float team. Each resident does 2-two week blocks of night 

     float in second, and third years.


     Saturday night call:

     (7 pm to 7 am): Covered by outside rotations (Call pool is - Ortho, Surgery, CC/Pulm, and Electives in 2nd year, Electives in 3rd

     year)

OB call
Our program provides 24/7 coverage of the Labor and Delivery floor as well. In house call responsibilities include managing any active labors, antepartum patient, postpartum patients, care of triage patients, and phone calls from the Goppert clinic OB patients. We also provide care to the newborn nursery. The OB service consists of 2 interns, one second year resident, and for the first two weeks of the rotation one third year. Faculty/Continuity residents are called in for all Goppert clinic OBs and outreach clinic deliveries and physicians from the other groups at RMC will be called in for the delivery of their patients. A night float system functions similarly to the medicine night float system described above.


     Short call:

     6:00am to 6:30pm is covered by residents on OB service


     Overnight call:

     (6:30 pm to 7 am): Sunday through Friday is covered by night float personnel (the second year covers 2 weeks of night float

     and the interns cover a week each)


     Saturday night call:
