Rookie mistake (that I just made): always make sure you have tissues when you walk into a family meeting!

The active problem list is not a diary. Ask yourself: is the fact that the patient was admitted for community-acquired pneumonia in 2002 still relevant in 2020? If an item doesn't spark joy (i.e., better patient care), delete it!

You're now months into your internship. Feeling miserable? You're going to have to tease out how much is your current situation--Little sleep, lack of social life, etc., vs. how much is your current chosen specialty. If it's the latter, THERE IS TIME TO CHANGE.

Patient comes to the ED with dizziness and dyspnea. Sometimes you must treat before waiting for “documented” labs. K 8.8, new acute kidney injury.

Betadine works on : JAMA ENT   Next time you get sneezed on, grab your betadine, dip a Qtip, and swab away the ! Betadine inactivates the virus nicely, better than alcohol.

There are times to be creative- rounds is not one of them. Stick to a template: one-liner, o/n events, S, O (VS, exam, labs/imaging), A/P by prob or system. Same boring order = you don't forget stuff and listeners follow your train of thought.

nausea vomiting is not a diagnosis. Always look for underlying cause. Elderly patients with N/V makes me worry. Differential is as wide as it gets. It can be anything from ACS to gastritis.

Pt presents with a symptom- you think not serious and reassure them. Pt presents 2nd time- do more investigation before you write it off and reassure. When a pt presents > once w/the same issue, esp if worse, more evaluation is warranted.

ICU Pro-Tip: 👏   Today, move your patient near a window & let sun beam on her face. It’ll say, “Look, out there, it’s where you belong. This illness is temporary!” 💯 (pic by Dr. Thomas Stroem, Denmark)
