After Care Program
The IRMC After Care program was designed for patients who visit the emergency department. Within a few days of your emergency department visit, a registered nurse (RN) will reach out to you to see how you are feeling and whether follow-up care with a primary care provider or a specialist is necessary. The RN will address any issues related to medication, assist you in coordinating your healthcare and schedule any follow-up appointments.
