METHODS: In this cross sectional study, a 31-question survey was distributed in person to 32 board-certified dermatologists at the 2017 Society of Dermatology Hospitalists meeting.

Herpes zoster can present many uncertainties for consulting dermatologists. We review the current guidelines and recent literature on important issues that arise in the care of hospitalized patients with herpes zoster, including infection control isolation practices, treatment courses for zoster and acute zoster-associated pain, and indications for long-term prophylaxis. We present the findings of an inpatient zoster management practices survey of the membership of the Society of Dermatology Hospitalists, an expert resource group of the American Academy of Dermatology, and discuss directions for future investigation and potential opportunities for management improvements in light of these collective data...

The question of what makes a successful dermatology hospitalist has risen to the forefront due to the rapidly increasing number of these providers. Inpatient dermatology fellowships have formed as a direct consequence. Though mostly in their infancy, these programs have primary or secondary goals to train providers in the dermatologic care of the hospitalized patient. This article presents a brief synopsis of the history of traditional hospitalist fellowships and extrapolates these findings to existing hospitalist dermatology fellowships...

Hospitalist dermatology is a subspecialty dedicated to high-quality care of medically complex hospitalized patients with dermatologic diseases. Significant unanswered questions affecting the diagnosis and management of these patients persist, and research is urgently needed to improve patient care and move the field forward. This article explores strategies for successful conduct of research in hospital dermatology, including the role of cross-collaboration, and draws parallels with strategies utilized in rare diseases research...

Dermatology consultation can improve diagnostic accuracy in the hospitalized patient with cutaneous disease. Dermatology consultation can streamline and improve treatment plans, and potentially lead to cost savings. Dermatology consultants can be a valuable resource for education for trainees, patients, and families. Inpatient consultative dermatology spans a breadth of conditions, including inflammatory dermatoses,infectious processes, adverse medication reactions, and neoplastic disorders, many of which can be diagnosed based on dermatologic examination alone, but when necessary, bedside skin biopsies can contribute important diagnostic information...

Ethical issues commonly arise in inpatient dermatology consultations. We describe the case of an inpatient suffering from a severe, undiagnosable skin condition that raises key principles of medical ethics. The four principles include autonomy, nonmaleficence, beneficence, and justice. Ethical situations faced by inpatient dermatologists are similar to those experienced by medicine hospitalists, as compared with outpatient dermatologists, given the unique clinical setting in which inpatient dermatology is practiced...

Data were prospectively recorded on 1294 consecutive patients admitted to a General Medical Unit at the Gold Coast Hospital to review the caseload and pre-requisite professional skills of a general physician working as a full-time hospitalist. Based on this review, the general physician hospitalist must possess expertise in the management of common medical conditions and comorbidities, uncommon medical conditions, elderly patients, the seriously ill, the terminally ill, psychiatric patients, surgical patients and patients with dermatologic, ophthalmic and gynaecological problems...

Currently, only a minority of dermatologists participate in the primary hospital care of patients with severe skin disease. However, an opportunity exists to alter this course. We believe the current course is a detriment to our specialty, and as a specialists we should provide the care for the full spectrum of dermatologic diseases. Moreover, by not delivering complete dermatology care, our specialty also stands to lose respect from both our patients and peers. Our experience at UM suggests that the creation of a cadre of dermatology hospitalists at selected academic medical centers would allow improved patient hospital care, education, and research...
