Residency check-in on Tuesday night
Given the ongoing covid surge and patient volumes, there will be an optional residency check in on Tuesday, 1/11 at 8:45PM with Manish to discuss testing, staffing, and our well-being initiatives. It also can be a safe space to hear any ideas, thoughts and feelings you want to share.
Reminder from Residency Leadership: Continue to Wear PPE
Reminder to everyone that they should be wearing PPE (masks + N95 + eye shield) at all times in all clinical areas. During breaks and morning reports, please continue to wear a face mask at all times. This is to protect yourselves and each other and prevent us from depleting our sick call pool.
If you have not received your Covid Booster shot yet, please consider doing this as soon as possible. Please reach out to the chiefs or Manish if you are having difficulty finding an appointment.

Reminder: Documenting Disposition Notes
A reminder that all patients being discharged should have a progress note documented and to use the “.resdispo” smartphrase as a template. This is important for documenting what was done in the ER and that the patient was reassessed. This should be done for all patients at both campuses.
Furthermore, all admitted patients must have a resident hanoff note.
