Open Shifts SMMH

For regular shifts ( day, evening, nights) that are still open in July and August there is now a $500 incentive per shift available ( $400 from hospital and $100 from group). This is not available currently for the 13-19 shift.

Please let me know what you pick up of these shifts and we can log this to ensure you get paid.

Critical results communication ( DI)

I added the document outlining the communication of critical results into media if you are interested. The latest revision was adding DVT.

ISITE comments

Please put your interpretation for every diagnostic test that you interpret without a radiology report in isite. Its a pivotal way to trigger our critical result pathway if you miss something on a x-ray, ct or misinterpret an ultrasound tech report .

I recently misinterpreted an ultrasound tech report so please put your comments in for ultrasounds too!

locum seeking shifts

Hi all, If you re interested in giving shifts aug 16-22 or aug 5-8 inclusive let me know asap at either hospital . If I can string together shifts a locum will come up. Maybe this will let you pick up another open shift??hint hint!

Flood help

Just to make sure you all know that Paula is collecting any donation for Shelley and family ( Er nurse Shelley) to help with repair/care/etc of their home that was severely affected by the flood. E transfer Paula or give her cash.


Form One intake

Please be aware that you do not have to wait for a CMH assessment to send the package for admission consideration for a form one patient to OSMH!! Attached is OSMH intake form!! Of coarse if you feel that a CMH assessment may help create a safety plan or that CMH may very well come up with a plan to care for the patient out of hospital then I would certainly indicate this on sending the intake package or wait for CMH….
