All Staff:

  • We are working on a care package to send to the medics in Dr. Schacht's platoon. As you know, Dr. Schacht was recently deployed to Poland. During his time on deployment, he has become a mentor for the medics in his platoon, many of whom are adolescents and away from home for the first time. With his characteristic kindness and generosity, he reached out to see if we could assemble items to donate to the medics in his unit as a morale booster.

    • If you would like to contribute items, please sign up using the link, and include your name, email address. Items can be dropped off in the Chief Resident Office (America Bldg, 4th Floor, Room 4560).

    • If you prefer to donate money rather than items, please feel free to swing by the Chief Resident Office to drop off cash or a check (to Leela Patel), or Venmo (@leela-patel). I will use the funds to order any outstanding items on the list.

  • Please complete your Summer Safety Training for the hospital -- located on the intranet banner and on Relias!

  • Help the ward discharge PI/QI team out by filling out their survey, here!

  • Please be advised of the following changes to pharmacy operations, effective June 6, 2022:

    • Same-day refills will no longer be filled. Refills must be called in ahead of time and picked up ONLY at the Drive-Thru pick up or the NEX.

    • All NEW prescriptions will be processed at the Arrowhead and America pharmacies only.

    • There will likely be changes to the pediatric pharmacy hours/availability, though these details have not yet finalized. Stay tuned for further updates.

    • The above changes will be messaged to patients via PAO (i.e. updates on social media and on the intranet, etc.), but patients will likely need reminders once the changes are in effect.

    • For staff who need to pick up prescriptions- please be advised that you can request refills using your CAC-enabled computer at Prescriptions will be ready within 2 hours at America or Arrowhead and you will receive a text when they are ready. When you arrive to the pharmacy, pick up a ticket at the kiosk that says "MTF Staff" to bypass the line and be issued your prescriptions.

  • In more uplifting news, Harriet Lane is now available on the uCentral App via the Darnall Medical Library! For instructions on how to create an account, visit If you have any issues establishing an account, contact
