The backup provider will also function as a PCMO and perform any or all the PCMO duties a minimum of one weekend per month. At that time the backup provider shall be available around-the-clock by telephone or be present in the Health Unit. A physician back-up provider may also be required to provide consultative or prescriptive services to RN PCMOs.
