Nominate a resident/intern for Housestaff of the month or just share something good.
“He went above and beyond to care for a patient rapidly decompensating in the MICU. In addition to ensuring the patient’s medical care (treatment, labs, monitoring, follow up) was appropriate, he held extensive GOC conversations throughout the day w/the patient’s family. His contribution to this patient’s care was invaluable.”
“He is a fantastic resident always trying to learn, but more importantly he continues to display unrivaled compassion even during his hard MICU rotation. He has helped numerous families cope the loss of a loved one and, as a testament to his compassion, was even cited in patient’s obituary.”
“He was the resident caring for my patient in the MICU — a 50yo woman w/end-stage pulmonary arterial hypertension. Her condition had reached end-stage w/repeated bouts of decompensated heart failure and this admission was especially challenging. She wasn’t quite ready for Hospice but desperately wanted to get home for her birthday. Because of high oxygen needs and living 2.5 hours away, her discharge was very challenging to pull off, especially on a Friday. Harrison spent several hours arranging her unconventional needs to get her home. He was instrumental in coordinating the discharge w/the PH team, Social Work and Home Health. The time spent and dedication to this task was especially noteworthy for an ICU resident who has many other competing tasks on other critically ill patients. Thanks to his efforts, the patient was able to get home for what’s likely her last birthday.”
“He showed extraordinary empathy and professionalism in assisting many patients and family through the stress of an ICU admission. He was also the consummate team player, efficiently helping other Residents to make things run smoothly.”
“She was able to provide exemplary care to extremely complicated patients while maintaining the highest level of compassion and empathy. Her patients identified her as their advocate and had wonderful rapport with her. Her ability to create a strong patient-physician bond was most impressive with patients who came to the hospital with an intrinsic distrust of the medical system. She exemplifies all of the best qualities desired in a physician — intelligence, dedication, empathy, passion for learning, and patient advocate!”
“Instrumental in 2 COH ACTs despite not being the AMBJAR resident responsible! One of the ACTs was on her patient and she provided necessary history/context to the ACT team. She also called report to the ED and gave sign out to EMS. When the next ACT was called, she was already assessing the patient before the AMBJAR resident arrived! Her proactive response and clear communication was key to providing timely, quality care.”
