Experience of a non-pediatric-trained ophthalmic hospitalist at a children's hospital
© 2020 American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus The relatively novel role of ophthalmic hospitalist at our institution includes evaluation and management of all inpatient and emergency department ophthalmology consultations. This report reviews the management of consultations at a children's hospital by the non-pediatric-trained ophthalmologist in this role. Within the study period of 2 months, 61 pediatric patients were evaluated by the ophthalmic hospitalist service. The pediatric ophthalmology department was consulted in 15 cases (25%), 10 of which were for discussion alone. This model of care illustrates an effective way to provide an ophthalmology consult service at a children's hospital in conjunction with pediatric ophthalmology subspecialists for management.
