Message from GME: Please upload proof of Booster by January 31st
Please note that the GME office has asked that all residents to upload proof of your COVID-19 booster vaccine information via NYP Vax App by Monday, January 31st. If your vaccine information is not completed by the deadline, you may experience issues accessing campus buildings as part of the NYP COVID PASS daily symptom attestation.
For your convenience, I’ve attached instructions for accessing and using VaxApp.
If you uploaded your booster documentation into NYP Vax App, you can check to confirm your booster was approved. If you received your booster at an NYP WHS space, it will be recorded in Epic. If you received your vaccine outside of NYP, please upload a photo of your booster to VaxApp. Your vaccine documentation should include your name, date(s) of vaccination, and the manufacturer of the vaccine received.
If you have difficulty accessing NYP Vax App or uploading your information, please visit WHS or call the WHS hotline at 646-697-9470.
Feel free to contact the Residency program if you have any questions.

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.
Reminder for Interventional Radiology Consults:
IR at Cornell requires a consult order to guarantee response. If emergent it needs to state life and limb threatening.
Shout out to Lauren and Christian for positive patient experiences at Columbia last month!
