At Absecon Veterinary Hospital, we are excited to support your hospital and provide around the clock emergency care to patients in Atlantic and surrounding counties. We are committed to maintaining the relationships that you have with your clients, and as a result, we have strict policies in place to facilitate referral back to your hospital for continued and ongoing care. We are designed to function as an extension of your primary care facility and hope to build strong relationships among veterinarians in the local community to provide seamless care for our mutual patients.
Our policy is built to ensure that patients will be returned to you for follow-up care, and our entire staff is aware of this policy and it will be strictly enforced.
As we build our name in the area as an Emergency Service, we hope to establish strong relationships with our referring veterinarians. We strongly value your constant input and will incorporate your feedback into policy changes to better serve you and our mutual clients and patients. We believe that the best outcome our mutual patients is with collaboration and so we are very open to establishing protocols regarding specific needs of your specific hospital regarding communication, transfers back to you for hospitalized patients, etc. In addition, we have a dedicated doctor hotline available to you, and one of our emergency veterinarians will provide you with answers to your questions immediately.
This October, our emergency hospital will be available to manage all medical and surgical emergencies around the clock including nights, weekends and holidays. You may refer emergency patients as well as hospital patients in need of overnight monitoring. These patients will be returned for follow up care, with a full report including x-rays and diagnostics.
