Hospitalists specialize in the total medical care and experience of hospitalized patients. Hospitalists coordinate nurses, specialists and surgeons for a patient's care. They also document the hospital stay including diagnoses, medications, and examinations for continual comprehensive treatment of the patient. They keep the patient's primary care physician informed and up to date of the patient's progress.
