Call for the residents is at-home call, and is every fourth night. Primary call is taken by the E.R. staff and physicians, but in cases of trauma, infection, etc., the resident will be expected to come in to the E.R. to see the patient. In addition, phone calls to the hospital are triaged through the hospital's Integrated Call Center, so often times the residents will not have to answer unnecessary questions from patients. In addition, the GPR may be called in to assist with an Oral Surgery procedure, either in the E.R., clinic, or the operating room.
