  • Licenses, Contracts and Hospital Privileges: Oh My!

    While I await my boards I have been compiling all of the necessary papers that are needed for purposes of licensing. With this also comes making a list of all of the fees that come with this. Although I will be receiving CME funds at the beginning of the year, my initial applications will all come out of pocket for me. Ready for the ...

  • Uncooperative Collaborative

    Every day is an adventure at the correctional facility and at times it is not from the inmates. Oftentimes, it is from the person I like to call ''The Lovely Doctor.'' I do not know why I call him that, but maybe it is because it is the nicest name I can call him...yes! It is sarcasm at its finest. One of the perks that has been rescinded ...

  • Challenging Patients in the Correctional Facility

    Over the past month I have had some very challenging patients. I will often question, why and how did someone end up here at the correctional facility? I believe it is better I do not know. Actually, it is none of my business; it keeps the care unbiased and pure and it does not impact how I treat them. If one of the inmates upsets the ...

  • When to Trust Patients in a Correctional Facility

    There was a disturbing incident that occurred a few weeks ago. I also look at this experience as an eye-opener for me. I have long come to this realization, but it was never more evident than when the incident happened. First, let me start off by stating, prior to my opportunity to work in corrections, I was judgmental and biased and I ...

  • Pain Patients

    My contact with pain patients was extensive during my residency in Aurora, North Carolina, a coastal town of about 400, with a patient population compromising of retirees, commercial fisherman and above-ground miners from a phosphate mine. I knew from that experience that even if I never found a job as an NP, I would not choose to do pain ...

  • Repurposing Treatments

    Costs for healthcare are rising. There is not a revelation in this statement, but as providers, we have to be mindful of the dollars we use because it affects raises. My former mentor would drive that home for me. When I would order a test, she would ask, ''Will that test change your treatment plan?'' And if I responded with ''no'' then she ...

  • Choose Your References Wisely

    References do make a difference. Keep the following tips in mind when choosing your professional references. Just say no to procrastination. Before you even send out your resume, you should have your references selected and ready to go. And by ready to go I mean you need to have more than just the names of those whom you wish to use as your ...

On Facebook, reader Amber said, ''20 in my emergency physician group ... can get frustrating!'' On our blog, more readers weighed in. Here are some of their ...

  • Accomodating Multiple Physicians

    There are six different physicians in my practice and thus, six different philosophical approaches to disease treatment and management. As a new NP, this can be somewhat frustrating. Some days I wish medicine and nursing were a bit more algorithmic. But alas, it ain't like baking a cake, so here's to finding the silver lining. Six ...
