Who can see your viewing activity?
Dr. Culbertson, thanks! Please discuss plans for wider spread implementation; is this available outside of neurology & cardiology?
Very nice work, Collin!
Thank you! Congrats on an excellent multidisciplinary improvement project.
What's the long-term plan for measuring performance?
is there an ideal radiology question format that we, the clinicians calling, can adopt?
is anyone having some issues with audio from presenter?
As a clinician calling in and reaching a reading room assistant, it would be most helpful to identify yourself, your service, and the type of question (what type of study to order, requesting a prelim read, questions about a report)
What percentage of fellows have a job/career taking care of SNF patients?
If the question is about a study that is being/has been performed, letting the RRA know what type of study and what type of question can help them get the question to the right reading room.
In general, providing MRN of the patient you are calling about is always helpful, as even for an ordering question it can be helpful for the radiologist to look at the chart to guide the thought process
19% of our fellows have gone into SNF
A follow up question - is this a large part of the geriatric boards?
The geriatric boards does touch on different forms of long-term care settings, as well as topics regrading rehab, decision making, and a lot of the SNF topics in general that are applicable both in SNF as well as in the community setting. There's a lot of overlap
Why is it important for the primary team to respond to the RRT?
Voalte project: Great that you used the Patient Safety Survey as a baseline for this project. Curious if you provided the nursing team with criteria for what defines a non-urgent issue that could wait until the morning. Thank you!
Hi Eric! Yes, we did review the criteria with the nurses and put the criteria on the clipboard at the front desk where the non-urgent flowsheet is kept.
We also followed up with the nurses and included the discussions in huddle when we came across one instance of a nurse inappropriately adding an issue to the list- it should have been relayed to the MD when it occurred. Having these conversations has improved awareness from both the provider and nursing perspective
