Plan of the Week: May 22 - 29

Play of the Week:

Bravo to Dr. Spencer Millen for his outstanding performance during his last night shift of residency. He presided over multiple admissions, an RRT, and a bedside procedure while ensuring patient safety and high quality care. Dr. Millen will be an incredible NICU fellow at Northwestern and will very much be missed at Walter Reed!

Kudos to Dr. Brian Graziose for his stellar clinical skills and composure during a 24 hour shift in the NICU this weekend. A 30+4 week patient delivered after a long period of monitoring on antepartum for premature prolonged rupture of membranes at 18 weeks and fetal anhydramnios. Dr. Graziose performed all of the key procedures during the resuscitation, stabilization, and multiple decompensation episodes. He performed several life-saving needle decompressions, during which the infant showed immediate improvement, and then ultimately placed a chest tube. Bravo to Dr. Graziose, who will undoubtedly make a stellar NICU fellow in the near future!

Shout-out to Dr. Billy Bennett for covering the PICU this week during a busier-than-typical shift this week. He expertly handled a transfer of a complex patient back to CNMC, a new admission, and replaced a femoral line for a sick, intubated patient. His positive attitude and teamwork are much appreciated, as well as his commitment
