Paging through FirstNet

This will page the service with your patient's name, MRN, location in ED, and your callback number. Medicolegally, this is the preferred method as it documents the time at which you first called the service.

Problems with Contacting On-Call Physicians

When you need to urgently contact the attending on a consulting or admitting service I would suggest your follow this approach, assuming the resident or fellow on the service hasn’t been able or willing to reach their attending and have them call you:

  1. Check AMION to see if the attending’s pager, cell-phone, and home phone numbers are listed. If so, try those numbers, in that order;
  2. If no information listed on AMION allows you to reach the attending, then call the hospital operator and ask the operator to contact the physician via his or her home number. (They may not release the number to you - in that case they should dial it for you.)
  3. If you still have no luck, and it is a true emergency then please text Roger Lewis’ cell at 31x-720-1661. You can also call Dr. Lewis but texting gives a better record of the issue and makes it easier to respond and address.

A true emergency is something in which a delay in care is likely to permanently affect outcome (e.g., STEMI, testicular torsion, SDH);
