General:

SCHEDULING CHANGE –as of NOW, the matrix for PGY 1 & 3 is as follows: 6a-2p1:30p-9:30p, and 9p-6a. This is different from last week so pay attention. 

PPE Selfies – I would like to come up with some way to send thanks to my friend that allowed us to obtain all of the half respirators. Please send me a picture of you at work in your half mask with the pink cartridges. Obviously keep any patient identifying information out of the frame. I was thinking of having people hold up a piece of paper that says “Thank You” or something along those lines. I’m open to suggestions. Send these to my work phone: 540-855-4994

Substance Abuse Modules – are available on the google drive under educational content > psych. Please watch these and go over the slides if you did not make it to lecture. Leslie needs a copy of your pre-test in addition to an evaluation for EACH MODULE. Yes, each module. Old Items:Resident Respirators –if you have not had a chance, go to employee health to get a replacement p100 cartridge for our half mask respirators. These are half the size of the pink cartridges so a little lighter to wear. Go now while supplies last. 

COVID-19 – continue to check the main residency drive > COVID-19 folder. I will continue to upload all the important documents as they are sent out. 

  • Attendings – if you want access to this folder send me your personal email address and I will send you a link to view. 
  • COVID-19 Links – is a document I made to keep track of the best resources to stay up to date. It is in the drive folder.

Podcast of the Week:

EM:RAP did a breaking news podcast week that was an update to vent management in COVID.  It’s very good and worth a listen. This was done by Haney Mallemat, MD who is an attending at Cooper Health so I am a little biased. https://www.emrap.org/episode/emrap2020april7/emrap2020april
