From Dr. Adria Simon: Recruitment Goals 2021-2022

Hi everyone,

I want to invite all of you to join the program leadership for a meeting about our goals for our 2021-22 residency recruitment season! In this session, we’d like to work to define our collective vision for the residency and shared values for the program.  As the group that defines the culture of our program, you are our most important stakeholders in identifying who thrives here and what ways we can continue to grow into a more inclusive, cohesive and supportive residency family. The leadership’s goals are to pull in the themes that arise from this meeting to build guiding principles as we screen and interview our potential future residents in the very near future.   To that end, please let me know if you’re interested in attending and consider preparing 2-3 ideas about core values or areas for growth for 8/25.  If you’re not able to make it, I’m always available over email or to chat on the phone to get your input.  

Mind the Gap: Social Disparities of Health Curriculum

Dear EM Family,
We are working on a new social disparities of health curriculum called “Mind the Gap” for our weekly departmental didactics. Please take a moment to let us know which topics you are interested in learning more about as well as your comfort and knowledge in some key areas.
We are most grateful for your time completing the survey.
It should be short and sweet!
With gratitude,
Denise Marte

Campus Announcements

From Dr. Oz Sayan regarding Columbia Morning Report:

“We need the clinical faculty to ensure that all trainees are released with enough time to get to Morning Report at 9:15am.  Late arrival disrupts the learning for all.” This will be messaged to the faculty as well.

Message from Dr. Peter Steele on ED Walk-Outs:

Our LWBS (left without being seen) rate has sky rocketed. This is a highly-scrutinized QPS metric by executive leadership; our individual chart reviews reveal many of these cases are due to inaccurate disposition documentation.
It is critical the ED team accurately documents left after being seen vs left without being seen. Please can you ensure the attached document is reviewed in detail by residents, specifically that LWBS should not be the selected disposition if there is any initiation of care prior to the event, including an APP triage RME. 
If the patient walks out while an ED team member is performing an initial evaluation, please document that evaluation as a brief note and identify as pt as left after being seen.
