Without slowing you down…
Sean’s TOP 5 Every patient:
1) Vital Signs: Never ignore them, and never discharge an abnormal one (without a good reason!)
2) Nursing Notes: Read them, and explain any contradictions
3) Reexamination: Document a reexamination on every patient in plain language
4) Shared Decision Making: “Mr. Jones and I discussed the risk benefit of admission for his chest pain today, however, he and I are comfortable with him being discharged on an aspirin and following up for an outpatient stress”
5) Be nice!
