Your Child’s Stay in the Hospital

Hi! My name is Wendy Taylor. I am the inpatient nurse practitioner for GI for Kids, PLLC. This means I am responsible for helping the doctor take care of your child while they are in the hospital.

I start seeing patients at 8 a.m. I will review your child’s blood work and test results and find out from you how your child did overnight in the hospital. Once the on-call doctor has finished clinic and/or procedures they will come and see your child. We will talk together and review the next steps in your child’s treatment.

Once your child is better they will be discharged to go home from the hospital and a follow-up visit will be scheduled with your primary GI doctor in 2-3 weeks. If you are discharged to go home on the weekend, you will need to call the office Monday morning to schedule the follow-up visit.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s care in the hospital, please let your nurse or nurse manager know so they can contact me. I will be glad to help you in any way I can.
