SICHC’s experienced After Hours Nurse (AHN) is available anytime the clinic is closed (early mornings, evenings, nights, weekends, and holidays) for patients. Your call will be answered by our answering service, evaluated, and referred to the AHN nurse.

AHN service is available for questions or concerns that need to be addressed in a clinical manner outside of normal business hours, that isn’t critical enough to warrant an ER visit. That can include medicine questions, someone’s feeling ill, reactions to meds, concerns regarding an appointment earlier in the day, etc.

The AHN can make a clinic daytime or follow up appointment. Or if needed, make an appointment at a local ER or urgent care center. An AHN has access to patient records and is able to order labs, imaging, and if needed, prescribe medications (authorized by on-call provider).
