UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital San Francisco and the Center for Mothers and Newborns have streamlined the process for transferring, transporting and admitting maternal, neonatal and pediatric patients. Call the toll-free number for the Access Center to refer, transport and transfer patients.
Labor and Delivery Transport
Once you and the UCSF attending doctor have decided on a plan, please have your staff gather the following information. It helps expedite the transfer if the forms are completed prior to the transport teams arrival.
- A copy of the current hospital chart from the time of admission and a transfer summary as well as the maternal chart if this is a neonatal patient.
- Copies of all radiologic studies including MRI and CT scans, X-rays or barium studies.
- Copies of all consults and subspecialty reports, EKGs, EEGs, surgical reports, pathology reports and slides.
- Four copies of the patient face sheet that contains demographic and insurance information.
