I would ask if the patient had anyone to come back and pick up the prescriptions and instruction sheets. Another option if they had no one to come back to the facility would be to call in the prescriptions for a family member to pick up and explain the after-care instructions to the patient or a family member. In the event that no one was home and an answering machine answered I would wait to hear if the name of the patient was on the machine. Upon verifying that the number was correct I would leave my name, where I am calling from and the number and leave a brief message of the reason for the call and ask the patient to call back as soon as possible.

The sign in area may also have a window separating patient’s information from the view of the patients sitting in the waiting area. The

window will also serve as a privacy petition when patients are calling to make appointments or asking questions pertaining to their illness.
