Navigating Your Hospital Stay

Hosted by Eric E. Kupersmith, MD

Have you been hospitalized or know you are going to need hospital care?  Eric E. Kupersmith, M.D., will answer your questions about being in the hospital. Who makes the decisions about your care? How are your family members and primary care physician informed about your progress? What do you do after you are discharged?

Hospitalists are specialists in the general medical care of patients during their stay in the hospital. Because hospital care has become increasingly complex and time consuming, patients benefit from receiving care delivered by an “in house” doctor, who is always available and can respond immediately to an emergency.

Dr. Kupersmith is Head of the Division of Hospitalist Medicine in the Department of Medicine.  He is board certified in Internal Medicine. He graduated from UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, and completed an internship and residency at Cooper University Hospital.
