End of Oakwood

Posted by Amanda at Saturday, November 19, 2011

I finished my last two weeks at Oakwood Annapolis. It was an interesting rotation. I spent the last two weeks going on rounds in the ICU. I saw one code and was asked to participate in it by the attending. I decided to decline the invitation. I also did a pharmacy in-service about basal bolus insulin. The hospital is planning on replacing the sliding scale insulin protocol with basal bolus because basal bolus has better outcomes for patients.

I also got to meet with a respiratory therapist and I learned about ventilators. It was pretty interesting. After spending four weeks in Oakwood, I think I will probably not be working in a small hospital.
