Shift Trades

As the holiday season approaches, a few reminders regarding shift swaps (to get them approved quicker!)

-Within the email, please include the block and campus for each shift  you are requesting to change.

-All participants in a swap need to confirm their agreement with the swap prior to approval

-All swaps need to adhere to duty hour guidelines:

  • <60 hours in a week, measured Sunday-Saturday
  • 12 hours off between 12 hour shifts, 8 hours off between 8 hour shifts
  • >70% conference attendance, averaged over the year

Discharge Workflow

As volumes increase and our bay’s get busier, quick reminder to ensure that you close the loop with the attending prior to placing a discharge order.

PGY4s, please ensure the attending has seen the patient prior to having juniors place discharge orders.
