Your Healthcare Team
While a patient at Rutland Regional Medical Center, you will be
treated by a multidisciplinary team of specialists who will work together to
provide you with care and quality you need. As an active part of this team, you
are encouraged to ask questions and offer feedback to any staff person with
whom you interact. To make this easier, every hospital employee is identified
with a name tag listing their name and department. Your care team members
Medical Staff. Our medical professionals include
physicians, physician specialists, podiatrists, dentists, and allied health
professionals such as physician assistants and nurse practitioners. Many of the
physicians on our staff admit and care for their own patients within the
hospital; others refer their patients to our Hospitalist group or to other on-site specialists.
Nursing Staff. Our Magnet Status nursing program is among the best in the state. Our
nurses are committed to providing patients with excellent care round the clock
and many have advanced certification in their medical specialty.
- Hospitalists. At Rutland Regional Medical Center, we offer
the specialized care of a full-time on-site hospitalist staff, who will act as
your primary care team during your inpatient stay. Hospitalists are specially
trained practitioners who only care for patients while they are in the
hospital. Most are board certified in internal medicine, family medicine,
and/or other specialties.
Managers. Your nurse case manager will act as a valuable resource by working
directly with your doctor and healthcare team, guiding and coordinating your
medical care, providing clinical information to your insurance company, and
assisting with securing discharge services and follow up appointments.
Workers. Our social workers are available to
assist patients and their families. In addition to providing emotional support
they can refer patients to appropriate resources for social and financial aid.
- Students. As part of
our teaching-affiliate program, we offer nursing students and those preparing
for allied health careers to join our care team. During your stay, you may be
provided services by one of these students, under the supervision of a licensed
professional. If you are uncomfortable with that possibility, however, simply
notify one of our nurses and your wishes will be honored.
- Volunteers. We are proud of our dedicated volunteers, who
contribute many hours of service to the hospital. Feel free to reach out to a
volunteer with any question or request; they will do their best to accommodate
your need or direct you to someone who can.
Staff. Although you may never meet all of the support staff members and
health professionals who play a major role in the operations here, you can feel
confident knowing that their dedication and professionalism will make your stay
at our hospital a positive one.
housekeeping staff works hard to make your room as clean and comfortable as
possible. If you are being examined by a physician, have several visitors, or
if your door is closed, your housekeeper will respect your privacy and return
at a later time. If you have a housekeeping problem in your room, let your
nurse know; we will take care of the issue as quickly as possible.
