||Alarm goes off, time to get up! Take my two dogs outside. Make coffee and eat oatmeal with my husband while reviewing the infectious disease patient list. I'm able to see patient's morning labs and any new consults that might have been added overnight. Get ready, and head into the hospital.
||Arrive at hospital. Print the patient list, say "hi" to my friends on the wards and go see the ID consults on our list. The list isn't too busy right now, so there are only four patients for me to see. I check in with the nurses to see about any overnight events, talk to the patient's families and do my exam. I answer some of the parent's questions about antibiotics.
||My ID attending pages me to run the list over the phone. We make plans to meet up to round in about 10 minutes.
||I meet my attending in the NICU to see our first consult there. After we round in the NICU, we head up to Infant's and Children's. We see two patients on the floor, and then finish our rounds with our patient in the PICU. After we round, my attending and I meet up with the different care teams to give them our recommendations. We have a few minutes, so we sit down and discuss different classes of antibiotics and their uses that are pertinent to our patient's at this time. I start on some of my notes for the day.
||It is time for intake! I go to the conference room on the floor which is where we have our weekly "intake." A resident will present a case and ask questions to the different residents and attendings. The intake today is about retropharyngeal abscesses, an ID case! My friends and I are able to answer the questions correctly.
