Compassion, Integrity, Skill and Service

By OBHG Super Admin on July 8th, 2013

We’ve all had the experience of showing up for our first day of work, eager, prepared but not quite sure what to expect. The following is a brief synopsis of Dr. Debbie Bredestege’s first day at one of Ob Hospitalist Group’s (OBHG) newest hospitalist programs at Cox South in Missouri.

Early in Dr. Bredestege’s first shift, a young female patient arrived by EMS after being discovered unconscious by a family member. She was evaluated by the Emergency Department  physician who called Dr. Bredestege upon discerning a positive pregnancy test in addition to hypotension and tachycardia. Even before Dr. Bredestege saw the patient, she suspected an ectopic pregnancy.

Different Roles, Same Goals

By obhg.admin on July 8th, 2013

Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) is committed to our mission of elevating the quality and safety of women’s healthcare. OBHG hospitalists provide on-site support and coverage 24 hours a day, 365 days a year- adding many levels of value to a hospital program. The presence of an OB/GYN Hospitalist provides peace of mind for patients who are given the unique advantage of being assessed by a physician upon each visit, reduced risk for hospitals and much needed support not only for the physicians, but for the nursing staff as well. In an effort to better understand and support the nursing staff in our nearly 50 partner hospitals, OBHG recently interviewed some of those nurses to gain their perspective on the benefits of the program. We wanted to share with you some of their thoughts on their individual OBHG hospitalist programs and the changes they have made in their lives and that of their patients. 

The general consensus was that the OBHG hospitalist program brings a level of comfort and security that nurses never experienced before; they are no longer required to make a judgment call on a patient’s status when a doctor is only available via phone. Having a hospitalists on-site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year alleviates fear and anxiety for nurses in many ways: they are not burdened with the pressure of having to make crucial decisions outside the scope of their license, it is no longer necessary for them to perform a delivery when the attending doctor cannot make it in time and they have the comfort of having a physician on-hand for any situations they might question. One nurse summed up this crucial change by saying, “we no longer have to experience the anxiety of making a judgment call in the middle of the night when the doctor on the phone can’t see the patient we are evaluating and we have to make uneasy decisions to admit or discharge a patient.”
