This Week (4/6)

42nd edition. The GI block has now ended and the champion will be announced pending the Rosh Review quizzes. As we move into the EMS/Wilderness we had a near-perfect attendance last week which I’m sure has nothing to do with the fact that it was online. Keep up the strong work everyone. 

General:

Resident Respirators –all residents now should have a half-face respirator with a set of replacement cartridges. These should only be used for intubations or high exposure situations. You need to have them fit-tested before use so please contact Gary to get this done.  

Med Hub GME Module – has been assigned in place of the in-person sessions in the Med Ed building for obvious reasons. Please get this done by the end of the month. It does not take too long. If you are having trouble logging into the video website through Carilion, you need to use “carilion\username” and then your normal password. IM Resident Survey – Previously I sent out a pre-survey as a QI for one of the IM residents. For obvious reasons, he is unable to complete the in-person training component to complete his project. Please go over the attached PowerPoint presentation and fill out his post-survey. It doesn’t take long so please help out a fellow resident. Post survey link:

N95 Fit Testing – is now happening at 5 North near the security office. Get this done asap if you haven’t already. Old Items:

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.

This Week (3/30)

41th edition. We are still waiting to hear from EM Coach regarding the last two weekly modules. I will hopefully have updates in terms of the scoring next week. No, this is not an attempt at sabotaging a potential first time House Perkins block win.  

General:

Resident Respirators – All PGY3s have a 3M p100 half-face respirator that has been purchased for you individually. If you have not already gotten it from me, they are in the resident room with your name on it. These are better protection than N95 and to be used for intubations primarily. The cartridges are good for 40 patient hours so keep track of your use. I will have replacement cartridges soon. 

  • 4 Extra masks – are available to PGY 1/2s, & attendings if needed. These are labeled in the resident room. If you use them please wipe them off thoroughly and document how long you used them for on a piece of paper next to the masks.  

Rosh Review – quizzes are now assigned and due Thursday, April 2nd. As we continue to use online educational modalities, these are essentially your conference attendance. Please get these done ahead of time. 

EM Coach – modules/reading/quizzes are also assigned and due Thursday, April 2nd & April 4th respectively. Be sure to hit the “submit assignment” button in the bottom left after complete the quiz, textbook reading, and video lectures. 

COVID-19 – continue to check the main residency drive > COVID-19 folder. Again, I have been updating this continuously as new policies/documents 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. 

N95 Fit Testing – is being conducted from 7a-9p in the 8S waiting room for all employees who currently use a 1870 mask. This is due to limited stock so go get tested to see if another mask will work. Old Items:

Blood Drive – will be April 30th tentatively but likely going to be changed. We are allegedly not eligible but make sure you let friends & family know to donate blood. There are currently shortages of all types. 

  • I have also heard that the American Red Cross is screening the blood for COVID-19 so you can tell patients, friends, family that this is a way to get a free & easy screening test.

Pediatric Fundamental Critical Care Support – the first class scheduled for April 28/29th. Stay tuned for possible cancellation.

Conference:NO CONFERENCE THIS WEEK. There will again be an EM Coach quiz/lecture/reading module assigned, see above. 

Scheduling:

PGY 2/3 – Block 11 should be published in the next day or so. Again, thank you all for being flexible in this crazy time. We are having to change the schedule constantly so we really appreciate everyone’s understanding. 

Podcast/Blog of the Week:

EMRAP Live COVID update, done on March 31st, 8pm ET. They are doing these weekly on live stream and then available on the app generally the next day.

This Week (3/23)

40th edition. There has been no movement on the scoreboard as we are still waiting for the results from EM Coach for last week’s module. There will be another lecture/quiz assigned this week so pay attention to your emails. 

General:

COVID-19 – to reiterate I’ve been putting all information as it is sent out in the main residency drive > COVID-19 folder. I do this daily so it should have the latest information. If you aren’t sure which is the most recent document in terms of triage, sort the folder by the time it was uploaded. 

  • COVID-19 Links – is a document I made to keep track of the best resources to stay up to date. The best, in my opinion, right now is EMRap. They have a home page dedicated to COVID-19 that is being updated by the minute in addition to a Corependium chapter. Other links are listed on the doc in the drive folder. 
  • PPE – as of today, all patients require a surgical mask, gloves, eye protection. If someone has a positive screen then you are expected to wear an N95, waterproof (yellow) gown, eye protection, gloves. This is dynamic and continuously changing so be sure to check your emails. 
  • Resident Coverage – has changed. PGY3s are now available on Main side 24/7 and shifts to match with the Attending. The only exception is the Thursday conference shift. PGY1s are now being shifted to E pod to limit their exposure (for now). 

Old Items:

Blood Drive – will be April 30th, put this on your calendar now. This is becoming more important by the day as the American Red Cross is reporting significant shortages of all blood types. 

Pediatric Fundamental Critical Care Support – the first class scheduled for April 28/29th. If you are a PGY2 plan accordingly.

Conference:NO CONFERENCE THIS WEEK. There will again be an EM Coach quiz/lecture/reading module assigned so get this done by Thursday night. Thursday morning time is still protected so there is no excuse to not get it done. 

Scheduling:

PGY 2/3 – The schedule is rapidly changing with the unavoidable upcoming influx of COVID patients. Please check your email regularly and stay flexible. We know it is no fun to have a schedule that keeps changing, but it’s not like we are able to do any traveling or social events outside of work. Thanks in advance for understanding. 

Podcast/Blog of the Week:

EMRAP Live COVID update, done on March 19th. I think they are planning on doing this weekly. It’s one hour and has lots of great information. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8We9m3egLbc&feature=youtu.be

This Week (3/17)

39th edition. Special Tuesday edition. The results from Rosh are finally tallied and House Clinton prevailed by a small margin to win the Renal/GU block. The GI block is now at the halfway point with House Perkins in the lead. I’ll keep this edition brief as there are much more pressing emails surrounding COVID that are undoubtedly in your inbox. 

Image

General:

COVID-19 – obviously it has been hard to keep up with the triage, PPE, testing information. I made a folder on the drive where I have been uploading the policy documents as they come out. Go to Main Residency > COVID-19. It’s colored in red to make it easier to find. 

  • Residents, check your email multiple times a day, communication is key and email is where most of the information is going to be sent. 
  • Ventilator management cards were created as an education project by Katie, KD, and Chad. I have also added these to the COVID folder for easy use. The Respiratory Therapists are often not being allowed/available for these rooms so you need to know how to set it up. 
  • EMRap/EMCrit/IBCC are doing frequent update podcasts on COVID19 and are a great way to keep track. See one below in podcast section. 

Old Items:

Blood Drive – will be April 30th, put this on your calendar now. We will have more information on that day/events to follow. 

Pediatric Fundamental Critical Care Support – is going to be a requirement for the PGY2 class and all classes moving forward. This is only offered on a very limited basis with the first class scheduled for April 28/29th. If you are a PGY2 plan accordingly.

From the Residency Desk

Happy February. It’s wet outside and everyone is sick. I can’t decide if Room 5, 8, or 11 from Monday’s shift gave me this fever so I guess they’ll all get a reduction in their physician professional fee as a thank you. 

CHIEF RESIDENTS
Thank you for voting. Our new chiefs for 2020 are Zach, Cassie and Lou. Congratulations to them, and thanks to all the residents who offered their services to this very tough job.

INTERVIEWS
Interviews are over and we are very happy with the candidates. Thank you everyone for an outstanding job, many faculty and residents committed incredible hours to finding the right ones and the feedback we consistently get from our interviews is very positive because of that effort. We had our resident rank list party a few nights ago and they threw a few people off the list and moved a few people around. Overall, I am really pleased with the list. We turn in the final list in a few weeks and wait for the lottery. A few thoughts from this season. 
1. We continue to expand our geography of interested candidates. This was the first year we did not offer free hotel rooms for our candidates and while I still think it makes a difference to grab some top candidates who might otherwise pass, our applicant pool was more geographically diverse than ever before. This is bucking what I believe is a national trend in EM right now. Ten years ago, when we were one of 150 ACGME programs, students had a few options in their own geography and had to look elsewhere. Now, you can interview at 14 programs without ever leaving the state of Florida. So, having such a geographically diverse applicant pool is a good thing and a testament to our reptutation. 

2. Students are picky. And, with 240 programs to choose from and no dramatic increase in the applicant pool in EM for the past few years, they can be. Our ability to offer a very unique training experience seems to resonate well with this current crop of finicky consumers and we continue to push our brand nationally. There is still a large band of students that believes the only way to get good training in EM is to live in a 4th floor walk up at $2500 a month and the risk of a mugging on the way to work. It’s beyond me but we ain’t selling any of that. Food for thought though…look how rapidly the landscape has changed. Here are 2011 numbers as program 148, and now last years… 2019. 15 programs went unfilled last year… in EM! This year, I anticipate it will be 20+ or almost 10%. In ten years we saw an increase in spots of almost 1000, but only 400 additional US seniors and that number of EM residency spots will be climbing further this year but the applicant pool has been pretty static for a few years and I don’t anticipate this rising this year. So..picky picky.

CONFERENCE 
This month is Renal/GU. Looking ahead we have several skills labs in the afternoon on glidewire foley placement and suprapubic catheter placement so if you need to brush up on these skills or review the difficult foley algorithm, come on by either this afternoon or next Thursday afternoon to the sim lab. 

Intraining EXAM
We have the ABEM training exam on Feb 26th. We have hopefully anticipated all the Resident coverage needs for that date but expect some absences. 

National Meetings upcoming:CORD; We have a large contingent of faculty, staff and residents heading to CORD in NY this year. Should be a great educational experience. New faculty who have not had the opportunity to attend, lets. 
SAEM: All interns heading to SAEM, we will have a residency dinner one of the nights. I will send out information on that locale in the coming weeks. Congrats to those who have abstracts and presentations. 
Evaluations:
Please continue to take a few moments during the shift to get evals completed. The comments are especially valuable, and thus far we have been having a good track record of getting these completed. 

Stay warm this weekend, 

DK

This Week 2/10
