About the Job

BayRidge Hospital DOC Overview


BayRidge is a 62-bed freestanding psychiatric hospital, with a friendly, helpful staff. The Doctor on Call (DOC) stays on the hospital campus throughout the shift.  Clinical duties are primarily doing admission workups, as well as responding to the inpatient units when called. On weekend and holiday 24 hour shifts, an additional duty is briefly rounding on current inpatients.  As the hospital has internal medicine coverage on regular business days, the psychiatric admission workup does not include performing a physical examination except on Friday evenings and Saturdays.  The DOC’s duties are entirely clinical; there is no involvement in patient placement or insurance issues except for very rare instances.


Weekend rounds are efficiently completed with the assistance of nursing staff and a largely pre-printed documentation format.  Rounding on up to 62 patients can be expected to take five to six hours.


Recently, the malpractice insurer providing individual coverage for many residents in Harvard-affiliated programs indicated that moonlighting activities at non-Harvard programs would no longer be covered.  In order to address this, BayRidge Hospital, a freestanding psychiatric hospital in Lynn, MA  WILL PROVIDE AN INDIVIDUAL MALPRACTICE POLICY FOR ANY REGULAR MOONLIGHTER.  The individual malpractice policy will cover activities at Northeast Hospital Corporation facilities only (including BayRidge, Beverly, and Addison Gilbert Hospitals).
