On-call? No thanks.

Abstract

Physician specialists increasingly say no--some even refuse to answer their phones--when hospitals ask them to take on-call duty in the emergency department. Solutions are complex and costly: reducing physicians' liability exposure, improving reimbursements, hiring on-site surgeons, and taking a regional approach to emergency care.
