Every week, this blog (IMRESPDX.COM) delivers to you content as fresh as a Mount Hood morning in February...

Today, the premiere Internal Medicine blog of the Pacific Northwest is proud to share with you news of the latest changes that relate to our cherished VA Medical Center!!!

Recently, the onus of placing beneficiary travel orders and observation admission orders have been lifted from the residents. Anyone who has tried to navigate this labyrinth of an order set can appreciate how big of a time saver this is.

In addition, a new buffer period for late call admissions has been implemented-- now admissions after 6:15 PM can be admitted by the night float team, allowing the late call teams to have a more predictable schedule.

Our VA Chief Resident position for Quality and Safety is now open for the 2020-2021 year! Please contact Dr. DiVeronica for more information about this fantastic opportunity.

Finally, we received word that the VA canteen now employs a SUSHI CHEF! We have not tried this ourselves, but please leave your reviews in the comments below or email a review to medchiefs@ohsu.edu for the sake of our entire readership!

Until Next Week, and Go Blazers!!!!
