Plan of the Week: August 28 - Sep 3

Updated: Aug 29, 2022

Plays of the Week:

Play of the week goes to Drs. Alex Mauro and Rob Crutcher on their promotions to LCDR! Congratulations!

Play of the week also goes to Dr. Amy Davis and her Ward work room decorating with an Under-the-Sea theme for Block 3

Play of the week to Dr. Jack Goetzman, who did a great job advocating for a patient discharge. We had a patient with an extended hospital stay who was tolerating PO medication therapy. Jack was able to speak up for the patient and family who desperately wanted to go home and follow up outpatient for infusion appointments. Way to keep the patient first!

Play of the week also goes to the Heme-Onc team and leading a fantastic academic half-day session. Thank you to Drs. Hepps, Cole, Greenwald, Smith, and Toro for covering the inpatient services while the teams were away.

RSV Season and Synagis

  • For the second year in a row, RSV season is early and we have already seen RSV in some of our patients. As many of you know, palivizumab (Synagis) is a monoclonal antibody that we give as immunoprophylaxis to infants at high risk for severe disease from RSV, to include hospitalization. We use the 2014 AAP Palivizumab Guidance (attached) to determine eligibility. In general, Synagis is given during the patient’s first RSV season only, but there are a few situations where it is given during the second season.
