March 2023 Inpatient Resident of the Month
“In the clinic, Dr. Champion was caring for a patient with recurrent bacteremia who had left the hospital multiple times before prior to completing treatment. The patient was off antibiotics and having infectious symptoms again. With multiple social determinates preventing the patient from going to the hospital, Dr. Champion coordinated care with the Infectious Disease team to expedite the best alternative treatments including PO antibiotics.”
“During a crazy long call day when I was on firm, Cosette was fourth night float. She graciously helped us admit a patient while also managing all of the cross-cover tasks. She did not have any hesitation to help despite the fact that she had a lot of work to do on her own. She did a fabulous job admitting the patient and had a great attitude.”
March 2023 Inpatient Intern of the Month
“I worked with Greg in the MICU recently, where he excelled. We had a particularly tough panel of patients that alternated between medically complex and socio-economically challenging, and he navigated both situations in a way that would have impressed me even if he were a senior resident.”
All that being said, there is one situation in particular for which he deserves recognition. We had a patient in the ICU who was in a bad situation, and for whom the family required a great deal of communication and explanation of the overall prognosis and course of care. Greg developed an amazing rapport with this family, and became an invaluable intermediary between the ICU team and the next of kin. He went above and beyond, even talking to the family on his day off to help facilitate communication and clarify the goals of care in this very difficult case. I was impressed by his devotion to the patient and ensuring their comfort in this very difficult case.
“Outstanding performance in patient care and family communication.”
March 2023 Outpatient Resident of the Month
“Exemplary care of a PCMC patient despite innumerable challenges. Dr. Hall spent a great deal of time and effort supporting a frail cognitively challenged patient who had just been discharged after a VERY complicated admission where long term planning had been of particular concern. This was still the case when Dr. Hall saw the patient in the PCMC and was further confounded by inability to reach family members. Despite this Dr. Hall addressed the patients problems in a clinically sound manner and did not let the complexity ruffle his feathers.”
