Inpatient Clinical Services

Johns Hopkins Hospital physicians may request inpatient Infectious Diseases consultation on any adult hospitalized patient by contacting the Infectious Diseases fellow on call any time of day.

Two Inpatient Consultation Services:

  • The Mann Service is for general infectious diseases consultation, including HIV.
  • The Polk Service is an inpatient service that coordinates inpatient care closely with the patient for admissions, discharges, induced sputum and pentamidine treatments.
  • The Tucker Service specifically covers people who are “medically- immunosuppressed” by virtue of having received severely immunosuppressive biological therapies, transplant, and/or treatment for cancer.
    • The Tucker Blue Service is a teaching service. Infectious Diseases Fellows consult and round on a daily basis with TOID physicians 7 days a week.
    • The Tucker Red Service supports transplant and chemotherapy in-patients 52 weeks a year.

Inpatient consultation requests or contacting ID fellows may be done through the JH PING mobile system.
