  1. So I finally got a job at my dream hospital!! I am currently working there as a Patient Care Technician/ PCT. However, I will be leaving for PA school next year. I really want to return to this hospital and work as a PA! The problem is that getting a job at my hospital is super competitive. Is there a way for me to ensure/ increase my chances of getting a PA job in this facility in the future? (Also, what do you guys think of requesting a absense of leave instead of quitting? Can I be able to come back to the hospital to pursue a higher position?) Thanks in advance!
  2. Conversation opened. 1 unread message. Procedure Logs and the Reality for PAs By Bob Blumm, MA, PA-C, DFAAPA Physician Assistants were always allowed to engage in lateral mobility. Lateral mobility is the freedom to pass interchangeably from one specialty to another such as family practice to internal medicine or general surgery to orthopedic surgery. This is and was part of the attractiveness of our profession but we are moving into an era of stricter regulation that may require proof of competency in these other areas in order to be hired and to function at the top of our role. Failure to achieve this can result in being anchored to your present specialty or making you a victim of a liability suit because there is no formal training and there is no log of past performance. I received an e-mail from Tom Gocke a few years ago and he made this comment;” Bob, this is for all PAs! Going forward we will all need to prove we can perform procedures we profess to be able to perform. Resident programs for PAs will help but not all of us go to those programs and if we continue to enjoy the freedom of job mobility, co-insurance and our employers will want some assurance that we are able to perform a specific skill with proficiency.” Tom Gocke, MS, ATC, PA-C, DFAAPA. I have mentioned this for a number of years but now strongly encourage my colleagues on both the PA and NP sides to start a log that demonstrates a procedure that has been observed, graded and signed by a physician. We came close to having limitations on our SOP when the AMA last convened and the next time they choose to have us on the plate you can be assured that this requirement will be added. This new request or demand will be under the guise of patient safety and I must agree that I would have a experienced PA or NP place my central line rather than an absolute novice. The result of a failure to keep a log will be discovery by a plaintiff’s attorney and the initiation of litigation. It is for this reason that I encourage all my colleagues to purchase a personal liability insurance policy by CM&F as this can make a difference in your representation as well as in the outcome. All of the words above are of extreme importance to every clinician and I cannot urge you enough to comply.
