Physician Update on the General Internal Medicine Oversight Committee

01-Dec-2015

This committee has continued to meet monthly. Membership includes Drs. Carson, White, McCutcheon, Abdulla, Ene, Duffy, Richardson and Lori Hopfauf. The committee has focused its efforts on the issues that were identified as the most pressing during the May Retreat. Improvements have been made to the call frequency by the batching of calls from the inpatient units and by great support from the ED physicians who agreed to hold calls from the ED at night unless absolutely necessary. The GIM physicians have in-turn commenced their morning rounds within the ED allowing for more prompt disposition of ED patients. A number of other initiatives are underway including the provision of locum services to the Pasqua site and planning for recruitment to the Pasqua vacancy.

The committee will focus its next meeting on the Section of GIM’s response to the Sunnybrook Report and the development of the Physician Resource plan for the service.
