Plan of the Week: March 31st - April 6th

Plays of the Week:

Happy Easter to everyone! And I hope everyone had an excellent National Doctor's Day!

Play of the week goes to Dr. Connor Liggett and Dr. Rebecca Morgis, who responded to a urgent Code Purple up on the NICU for a preterm infant. Rebecca helped with resuscitation, while Connor prepped lines. They went above and beyond in their dedication and willingness to help out. Additional recognition to Dr. Taylor Meyers, the overnight NICU resident who was on service and did a great job helping with a difficult case.

Shout out to Dr. Robert Crutcher, who had an excellent Morning Report on a patient who was just admitted for an extensive workup. Rob modeled how sometimes the best Morning Reports are the ongoing cases without a diagnosis or treatment plan, where you can gather input from our staff and subspecialists. Great work!
