- Industry: Healthcare - Physician - Neurology
- Type: Full Time
A facility located in a large Nevada city is seeking a locum tenens neurologist to provide 24/7 call coverage.
The locum will take call 1 week on/1 week off and coverage is expected for 2 full weeks out of the month. There are typically 10-15 new consults per day and approximately 10-15 follow ups daily for a total patient volume of 20-30 daily. This includes ALL neurology patients, stroke and general neurology, ICU, etc. The facility uses EMR for notes and documentation.
Call is expected to be covered 24/7. From 7 am-7 pm, all urgent and non-urgent calls are forwarded to the neurologist. From 7 pm to 7 am, only urgent calls are forwarded to the neurologist and non-urgent consults are placed in the computer and can be seen the following day. The neurologist does not need to be in house from 7 am-7 pm and can use his/her own discretion and schedule to see patients that day. Due to high volume, the neurologist is generally in house 10 - 14 hours. It can be less but this is a general estimate. When not in the hospital, the locum can manage calls via telephone. To be considered for this position, the candidate must have an active Nevada license and must be board certified.
