Although I do always appreciate it when attendings (male or female) advocate in these types of situations 🙂

I politely corrected the patient on her error -- no attending needed! Although my (female!) attending was very supportive when I told her what had happened afterwards.

It’s tempting, but I don’t feel it’s productive to leave without an explanation. Otherwise, we miss an opportunity to educate and we leave patients confused when they don’t have to be!

Like most female physicians, I’m accustomed to this. I always wear my white coat & always introduce myself by my title, even though it feels formal. To many, a woman in healthcare is a nurse even when all signals indicate otherwise. I ❤️& respect RNs but that’s not what I am!

Spent 20 minutes explaining the plan to a patient & answering her questions. Me to patient afterwards: “What other questions do you have?” Patient: “None, really. I’m just waiting for the doctor to come in so he can tell me the plan.” 🙄😒

It’s true! I saw a patient last week who’d been discharged on a 30-day antibiotic regimen. Knew without looking at a single note that that course wasn’t recommended by ID!

It almost seems more bizarre to me to have an absurdly short leave policy than to not have one at all. Its not like no one considered leave; worse, leadership considered it and thought, yeah, two weeks. That seems reasonable. 🤦‍♀️

Getting folks to believe RSV is driving a patient's hypoxemia, etc., is often a challenge. Will be good to have this paper in my back pocket!
