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: Hospital Training Due December 31
Remember to complete the SabaCloud training by December 31. All residents must also complete the required stroke modules, also due December 31.

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.
Covid Updates from Cornell Leadership:
LAC/USC EM/PEM Faculty
Allen – he successfully managed a peri-intubation patient in the CT scanner, who then later became extremely unstable in B bay at Columbia. He masterfully managed all the right pressors, and even spared an intubation, and then went with the patient to the ICU. Even the ICU triage resident didn’t know how to handle the patient. Keep up the great work Allen!
Maria – for taking signout from 2 juniors do to last minute staffing changes, while also continuing to pick up new patients and help move the board. Great work Maria!
