Locum - Family Physician Inpatient Care – O’Leary and Alberton

Health PEI is seeking a long-term locum physician to provide inpatient care to patients within the Community Hospital  O’Leary and Western Hospital, Alberton, beginning immediately.
The Community Hospital O’Leary is a 13-bed acute care facility, including 4 provincial palliative care beds and 9 beds dedicated to patients requiring acute or convalescent care, or who are awaiting long-term care admission. In the hospital there is an ambulatory care department, lab/diagnostic imaging services, home care, public health, primary care and a 40-bed long-term care home.  The province’s only simulation lab is located at the  Community Hospital O’Leary, providing health care professionals in the West Prince region the opportunity to practice health assessments and technical skills.

Western Hospital is a 25-bed acute care facility including 2 palliative care beds. In the Western Hospital there is an ambulatory care department, lab/diagnostic imaging, public health, and primary care.  An emergency department is also located within the facility, offering emergency services to over 11,000 patients per year. At Western Hospital an innovative tele-rounding model is in place, the first-of-its-kind model in Canada. This virtual inpatient rounding model utilizes remote physicians and onsite nursing support for unaffiliated patients who require care.
This locum would provide comprehensive inpatient care for adult affiliated and unaffiliated patients, or patients with primary care providers without hospital admitting privilege. Care duties include admission history and physical examination, daily medical management, daily rounds, participation in multidisciplinary rounds and family conferences as needed, and discharge planning.
