Back to Massachusetts

I’ve started a new rotation in at a chronic rehab hospital in Waltham, Massachusetts. It’s definitely a different pace from any other work I’ve done before. I’ve been learning a lot about bed sores and tube feeding!

Night shifts

Well, I’m gonna be here in Green Bay for a little while longer, probably until Thanksgiving. So far, I’ve been working mostly night shifts, bringing back vivid memories of ‘night float’ during residency. Overall, I’m really enjoying it. Everyone’s really nice and welcoming. It’s quite a change from residency when you’re the low man on the totem pole. The patient population is more primary care oriented. I’ve seen one transplant patient so far, wheras I used to see almost one-a-day in residency. I couldn’t think of a better way to transition from residency into real-life…

Going to the homeland!

I found out recently that I’ll be spending 3 weeks (maybe longer) in Green Bay, WI. I’ll be working as a hospitalist at St. Vincent’s Hospital (Prevea HealthCare). It’s a 580 bed hospital with 40 ICU beds and I’ll be doing 12 hour shifts - mostly day shifts, but a couple nights. It should be fun! I’m looking forward to being back in Wisconsin, especially Green Bay, for football season. Go PACKERS!!
