Care Provided by Subspecialists Working Outside Their Specialty: The Importance of Hospitalist Training

Arch Intern Med. 2002;162(14):1647. doi:

Weingarten et al1 have addressed the quality of care provided by subspecialists working outside their specialty. However, as the authors note in the "Data Source" section of their article, only 1 of the 6 hospitals in the Cleveland, Ohio, consortium had a hospitalist program. Therefore, an important distinction needs to be drawn between subspecialists trained as hospitalists (commonly but not exclusively pulmonologists) and those not trained as hospitalists.
