Current Process in Place

As the referring facility/physician, call 1.888.461.0030 (Available 24/7)

DANC will take your calls Mon - Fri 7am-11pm

House Administrators will take your calls 11p-7am Weekdays and Weekends

Once you place the call you will be asked:

  • Your Name and Phone number so we can reach you if needed
  • Which facility and specialty you need
  • Name, Diagnosis, and DOB of the Patient

We will then call the Physician on Call for needed specialty at the requested facility (SJH or SJE) and have them call you at the number you provided.

After 15" our DANC nurses will call for confirmation at your facility/office/ED that our physician call did return the call to you. If not we will repage (our goal is that we will be able to do this on the initial call with a three way call directly with our physician on call but currently this is our process).

If the requested physician has not called you within 30" we do have an escalation process in place to address this.

Once we get confirmation of acceptance from the receiving physician we will then:

  • Assign a bed, immediately if there is one available-if  not ASAP
  • Get demographics sheet faxed to our admitting department with notification to them to expect patient and HA notification of pending transfer
  • Notify your Nurses of who to call to give report on transfer
  • Assist in any other way to expedite the transfer for you
