  1. I don't think it is an issue as long as it's generally kept in a safe environment within the hospital/facility, i.e. personal locker or office. If wanting to be very sure, something like a procedure logging app that encrypts the files would work.
  2. I've also had this issue when working on credentialing at a new hospital, but I don't do any procedures, which is even more ridiculous. I just tell them that I won't be able to get them because the medical records database searches based on the admitting physician, i.e. even if I admit it'll be under a doc's name.
  3. The CMO will not have your back when the medical board wants to take your license away after a patient dies from an overdose. These chronic pain patients that require opioid therapy should be seen by pain management. I would mention in your email that your patients would be best served in that way to assure they receive appropriate, SAFE care.
  4. I think this is really good advice. I love hospitalist work, but the admin/IT/etc. hurdles can be really draining. The best decision I ever made was to go full time locums/contractor/1099/whatever. Now all those problems that still exist everywhere aren't my problems except for a short time. I show up, do a good job, and next week I'll be somewhere else with a nice change of scenery. OP, have you considered doing some locums work? I can't tell you how much of a mental break it can feel like to just go into a new clinic or hospital, even if you're working in the same field.
  5. I hear that a lot in the hospital as well after taking over a patient. "Provider X would just come in and talk for 30 seconds and walk out. I don't even know their name."
  6. It's an everyone issue...not just a PA issue. Most people don't have much in the way of retirement savings, or savings in general.
  7. Wrong section. https://www.physicianassistantforum.com/forum/441-pre-pa-general-discussion/
  8. From MAPA's press release: "Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners are both qualified mid-level professionals"
  9. I didn't say anything about MAPA. I said there was a lack of education when the bill was being written...as in the legislators and their staff are uneducated on the issue.
  10. For the lazy, it pertains specifically to the ordering and continuation of restraints(physical and chemical). There was definitely a lack of education when that bill was being written.
  11. Pay is a little on the low side, but it's hard to complain with only 6-10 patients per day. Everything else looks good, but ouch, you'll be rotating days and nights every other week?
  12. I haven't used either Sofi or Laurel Road, but have refinanced a few times with other lenders since graduating. I'm currently going through Citizens Bank, though it's serviced by Firstmark. My rate was about the same(4.2%), but I got a $500 Amazon gift card for refinancing. No complaints. I've also been with Navy Federal Credit Union, Pentagon Federal Credit Union, and Common Bond. Don't be afraid to refinance again if better offers come up in the future.
  13. I recently did my recert online at https://promedcert.com/ . It was fast and easy. There was no 'in person' component. Drop me a PM if you want a referral link that gives 15% off.
