Plan of the Week: June 5 - 11

Play of the Week:

Play of the week to Dr. Sharen Wilson for successfully nominating the NCC Pediatrics residency for a gift from the Oak Leaf Club! Thanks to Sharen's nomination, the resident workroom on 3W now has a new futon and a speaker. May the old futon (pictured below) and its distinctive Cheeto-like musk rest peacefully.

Many thanks to LT Dianna Garcia, who was the triage provider in clinic on Friday and selflessly stepped up to see several patients after unexpected changes in the schedule. We greatly appreciate your positive attitude and willingness to help during a very busy day!


Weekly Schedule:

Please note that the PGY3's Transition to Practice Schedule is included in the calendar below, highlighted in light blue. This schedule pertains only to the graduating PGY3's and the faculty who are delivering their lectures.

Additionally, two important events requiring RSVPs are highlighted in lavender in the schedule below-- on Friday, 6/10, Dr. May will have his promotion ceremony, and the NCC Pediatrics Residency Program will be hosting its annual End of Year Party! Read below for details.

        • Wait in the peds lobby for their prescriptions. The family will receive a text from pharmacy when the prescriptions are ready.

        • Proceed to the pharmacy lobby, then text “I am here.” The family should NOT text “I am here” until they are physically in the pharmacy lobby.

        • Note that this process applies to NEW prescriptions only.

    • (3) For REFILLS: same-day refills will no longer be filled.

      • Refills must be picked up at the NEX pharmacy or Drive-Thru pharmacy, and must be activated 48 hours in advance of the requested pick-up time. To activate a refill, patients can utilize one of the options below:
