Love hummus, but wish you could take it with you more easily? Why not try making these fun hummus balls! They are bite size snacks that you can graze on and take with you for snack if you want! They may be small, but they pack a good bit of protein and a bit healthy fat to satisfy.
So my first call was Saturday. I covered 3 hospitals. (Only 2 of which I knew the location of) and I still hadn’t been fully trained on all of the computer systems. I also don’t really know how to get around the city all that well, let alone how to get around in the hospitals themselves. I was only given a brief tour of one of them (that I may add is a cool 2.3 million square feet in size).
Call for my residency is different from that during my intern year. There, if you were on call, you stayed in the hospital until at least 9pm and took care of any problems on the floor, did admissions, went to codes. Here, I take home call from 7a-7a. From what I gather, we see anything we get consulted for, whether it be from the ER or from an inpatient team. I’m not quite sure how it works when we are in clinic and get consulted since there is not a dedicated person only covering consults. So, perhaps some days you don’t get any calls, and other days you get slammed. The biggest similarity is that I now again have a pager.
Mine looks slightly different, but they pretty much all function the same. High tech let me tell you lol. I was so happy to have turned in my last pager, but alas I have another one. Boo! Haha. However, I did know that I would be getting another one, so at least I wasn’t surprised. My new one kept going off and beeping like crazy. It WAS SO ANNOYING. All of a sudden though I figured out maybe what the cause what. I was all like STOP!
You see, I realized that it was going off the most whenever it seemed to get bumped. Sure enough, I checked the battery and it was just slightly loose. So, every time it got bumped, it would think it was restarting, or something I guess and go through some sort of check. I was SO happy when I figured that one out.
Overall, it was not that bad. I got a couple consults and had to see a couple follow ups. No emergency room calls and I was not up all night (unlike my co-resident on call before me who was up ALL night, which sucks). I still don’t know where that 3rd hospital is, nor where the ERs are lol, but I have a slightly better idea of how to work 2 of the computer systems (maybe) and what to do on consults. So, I’ll call it a success. I’m on call from 7am this Thursday to 7am Sunday morning, though, SOOOOOO well see how that goes. Wish me luck!
How do you feel about hummus?
Any pager mishaps for any medical people out there?
