Podcast/Blog post of the Week: Not really a blog post but wanted to share an article about a new SARS-like virus that is being diagnosed in the Wuhan province of China. It is their new year so peak travel season. A few airports in the US have started screening for it. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/01/20/wuhan-pneumonia-new-cases-amid-china-travel-season-ahead-of-lunar-new-year.html

Coronavirus cases set to rise as more people travel ahead of the Lunar New YearHealth authorities in China confirmed nearly 140 new cases of a new Sars-like virus on Monday morning, which has killed three people so far.www.cnbc.com

This Week (Dec 8th)

25th edition. The moment you all have been waiting for, the results of the ortho block. It all came down to the Rosh Quizzes as House Clinton had a 6 point lead over House Kuehl at the end of the month. Like true champions, House Kuehl prevailed with an average of 79.1% (Clinton – 75, Perkins – 65, Fortuna – 73) making us the overall block champions.


General:

Interview Dinners/Lunches – This Tuesday, December 3rd, 6:15pm at Blue 5. Lunch the next day around 1pm at Riverside. Let’s keep it up and continue to have a great turn out.

Practice ITE – is either this Thursday, December 12th or the following, December 19th for those who haven’t already taken it. It is 220 questions and designed to be difficult. Be sure to go over the answers after to get the most out of it.

TEE Schedule – attached is a call schedule for the attendings that are credentialed to be TEE, they would like to be notified of any opportunity that presents to the ED. I got to do my first one yesterday and let me say that it is much trickier than at SIM so practice every opportunity you get.

AHA NIHSS Stroke Certificate – due today for PGY3s! Go to the link below and take form B as most of us took form A previously. It takes a little bit of time so don’t put it off. Other residents need to get it done as soon as possible but not necessarily today.

Stroke Site Visit by Joint Commission – is today, December 9th, so look sharp. Know where the stroke algorithm is located and the default answer is to ask your attending. 

Hepatitis C – continue to order on all patients unless they have it documented in the chart or decline testing. Consent is not absolutely necessary but you should discuss it with your patient if you are going to be ordering it, similar to any other test you do.

This Week 11/24

23rd edition. Welcome to the newsletter Dr. Waasdorp (Wilderness Medicine Fellow). House Kuehl made up some ground last week due to stellar participation in the trauma conference. House Clinton remains in the lead by the slightest of margins. It all comes down to the Rosh Review Quiz!

Image

General:

Interview Dinners/Lunches – None this week due to the holidays. 

Rosh Review – quizzes for the block will be assigned Monday, be on the lookout. 

Residency Thanksgiving – Zach Williams and his wife Emily have been gracious enough to host. ThisWednesday, 11/27 @ 6:45pm, 2529 Mount Pleasant Blvd SE. He has suggested carpooling/Uber due to limited parking. Significant others and children welcome but no dogs. Sign up sheet for what to bring is belowhttps://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1sgDsWqBbjarzN9SIWfs1oRpG0XQiZIlwqyyguqxb3JE/edit

Perfect Serve – is live and working great… Couple reminders, if you are in the ED at RMH you may still put the consults in through EPIC and MedCom will do the paging for you. If you are not in the ED, one helpful tip is to go to contacts > groups > whatever specialty if you need to get ahold of a consultant. There is usually a separate listing for residents like “orthopedic residents”. There is a tutorial online that is very helpful and worth taking the time to do. Spend a little time now to save a lot of time down the line. 

Turkey Trot Volunteer Opportunity – Still one spot left if you are interested. Let me know ASAP. It starts at 8am on Thanksgiving morning. Easy way to fulfill your annual volunteer hours.

This Week 11/17

22nd edition. House Kuehl lived up to its logo and won the orthopedic showdown. House Fortuna won the presentation component. However, House Clinton continues to have the lead based on outstanding participation in all things residency. No formal conference days left but there are still lots of points to be had this week.
