Plan of the Week: June 26 - July 2

Play of the Week:

Play of the week goes to Dr. Noelle Molter for placing a UVC and UAC in a critically ill infant in the NICU in anticipation of an exchange transfusion! She has also been doing a stellar job with another critically ill infant and continues to educate medical students on service excellently! Great job, Noelle!


Play of the week also goes to Dr. Elise Reddington for expertly balancing the 3rd deck. She has stepped up and covered the PICU in addition to the ward on last minutes notice with grace, delivering great care to our pediatric inpatients. Thank you, Elise!


Final play of the week goes to the Friday Continuity Clinic team (Dr. Brian Graziose & Dr. Jack Goetzman) for winning the end of the year continuity jeopardy with a score of 27142 -- invite these guys to trivia! The Tuesday Continuity Clinic team came in a close second.


And finally, a warm welcome to our new intern class as they OFFICIALLY start this Friday!!
