Ambulatory care is utilized when outpatient medical attention is required, meaning the patient does not need overnight hospital treatment. Those working with ambulatory care have received medical staff credentialing and are licensed or certified nurses and physicians with thorough knowledge of healthcare practices and treatment.
Ambulatory care can cover several different types of treatments; practitioners in the field have backgrounds in a variety of medical disciplines and unique forms of care. Like other forms of healthcare, ambulatory care requires the ability to perform the diagnosis, treatment, and any medical procedures necessary for the patient. Ambulatory care also includes rehabilitation, emergency procedures, dental, and burn treatment, as well as blood tests, x-rays, and other methods of diagnosing patients. Ambulatory care expert witnesses should be well-versed in this subject.
Ambulatory care can be performed at home, as well as surgery centers, clinics, or emergency departments in hospitals that provide outpatient services for cases that can be completed within the day of arrival. This field of medicine is common enough that ambulatory care nurses may practice only on an outpatient basis. Physicians and nurses in the field are knowledgeable in several relevant areas of focus, including emergency management, medicine, and procedures, as well as facility management, risk management, and home care procedures. In medical lawsuits involving ambulatory care, healthcare administration and insurance might be involved.
