Sweet! You just graduated from your Critical Care fellowship and landed a great job in the community. No more PGY paychecks, 80+ hour work weeks, things are looking up! But after showing up for your first day, you quickly realize things are MUCH different than when you worked at that massive tertiary care hospital just a month ago.
Is your cardiology, nephrology, or podiatry consultant really blocking your ICU patient from being transferred out of the unit? Dr. Jeff Zilberstein is here this week to discuss the trials and tribulations of managing critically ill patients in the community, as well as talk about his experiences and success as a community ICU director.
