Plan of the Week: July 30th - August 5th

Plays of the Week:

Play of the week goes to Dr. Anna Raymond, who crushed her first LP on a febrile 26 day old. She performed an Ultrasound-guided LP under the supervision of Anthony Lucido and Sidney Zven, with Rob Crutcher providing excellent holding and positioning while overseeing as Ward Senior. Great job! Hopefully US-assistance is something we continue to use regularly in the future.

Additional play of the week to Dr. Amy Davis, who not only worked through her ARM day to assist with multiple Ward admissions and PICU support, but also turned down getting her 24 covered over the weekend to ensure continuity of care for a complex Ward census. Way to set the example and go above and beyond for your patients!

Play of the week to Dr. Genesis James, who is attending the National Medical Association Conference in New Orleans. The NMA is the nation's oldest and largest organization representing African American physicians and health professionals in the US. She is attending on the NMA Pediatric Section's Dr. Billie Wright Adams Scholarship due to her impressive academic achievements. Excellent job!
