Data about 590 phone calls to the Pediatric Division of Vigevano Hospital (a II level hospital) were collected during 6 months. Most of the calls were received between 8 and 12 a.m. (33,2%) and between 8 p.m. and 8 a.m. (25,6%). A diagnostic request caracterized 45,3% of the cases while 39% dealed with therapeutic counsels. People called because they wanted an hospital's opinion (29%), were already followed by the hospital (32,7%) or because it was not possible to contact the family pediatrician (32%). A visit was advised to the 29,3% of the patients, 12% of which was then hospitalized. Urgency was recommended for the 7,7% of the visits; 74% of these children were hospitalized.
