8 things that excellent hospital doctors do

He recaps the plan for the day, bids you a pleasant goodbye, and leaves your room as he found it — bedrails, lights, and TV volume adjusted to the way they were before the visit.Anticipatory planning. She prepares for your leaving the hospital by making sure you have transportation and appropriate medical follow-up, as well as the help you need at home to ensure that you continue to improve.Collaboration. He treats all members of the hospital team — nurses, social workers, pharmacists, residents, and medical students — with kindness and respect. In short, he plays well with others.The 12 remarkable doctors we observed had their individual differences, of course. Some spent more time joking with patients than others. A few encouraged the students or residents in the group to speak up more. There were variations in the way they did physical exams and how much time they spent with each patient. But they shared a desire to partner with their patients and to treat them with reverence and compassion — treatment all patients should receive. And they did the same with their colleagues.If you find yourself in the hospital, use this checklist to see how your doctors measure up. If they fall short in some regard, call them on it — politely, we hope. But if they pass, a resounding “thank you” would be appreciated.Sanjay Saint, MD, is the chief of medicine at the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System and professor of internal medicine at the University of Michigan.

They are coauthors of “Teaching Inpatient Medicine: What Every Physician Needs to Know” (Oxford University Press, March 2017). This article reflects the personal views of the authors and not necessarily those of the University of Michigan or the Department of Veterans Affairs. To do this, we identified 12 doctors from around the US who are recognized as outstanding teacher-physicians. We scrutinized their bedside behavior, did semi-structured interviews with them, and talked with current and former members of their hospital rounding teams. A good relationship between a patient and his or her physician is the cornerstone of superb medical care. That relationship is important when you know the doctor well. It may be even more important when you don’t, say when you are in the hospital.Growing competition for new customers is inspiring American hospitals to focus on providing a more positive patient experience — and hospitals expect their doctors to do their part.We wanted to know what defines great physicians in the hospital setting (sometimes called attending physicians), both in terms of their interactions with patients and how they teach the next generation of doctors — residents and medical students — as they go about their hospital rounds.advertisement Based on our research, we have drawn up a checklist of items reflecting how these top doctors interact with their patients. It might come in handy if you or a loved one must spend some time in a hospital. One caveat: You may be cared for by a team of hospital physicians, some of whom are in training. We compiled the checklist with the most experienced physician in mind; he or she supervises the team. That said, all team members should ideally display these behaviors.Preparation. She has studied your medical records and is familiar with the latest lab tests and other diagnostic results.Arrival. He enters your room smiling, introduces himself to you, and shakes your hand. He establishes a personal connection with you through brief, informal conversation.Hand hygiene. She washes her hands before touching you.Physical exam. He closes the hospital door or closes the curtain to preserve your privacy. He warms the stethoscope before applying it directly to your skin — not to your hospital gown. He explains his actions, and works to make sure you feel you are being treated gently.Communication. She speaks with you while sitting on a stool or kneeling in order to communicate at your eye level. She asks how you are feeling, explains medical issues clearly and in layman’s language, and tries to make sure you and, if appropriate, your family member understands. She makes sure that you agree with the medical treatments that have been proposed and asks how you feel about these recommendations. She encourages you to ask questions. Related: What we learned, in a nutshell, is that the way these doctors work is uniformly at odds with the familiar perception of the hospital physician as rushed and impersonal.advertisement Sanjay Saint About the Authors Reprints Doctors who can’t communicate bad news are technicians, not true physicians @sanjaysaint Molly Harrod Carsten Koall/Getty Imageslast_img read more

Europeans using EurAsia Cup for Ryder Cup prep

first_imgEurope captain Darren Clarke was keen to stress that the Ryder Cup in September wasn’t in his thoughts heading into the second edition of the EurAsia Cup this week. ”There’s no Ryder Cup stuff going on in the back of my mind,” Clarke said on Tuesday. It seems his players see it differently. ”One of the main reasons I wanted to play the EurAsia Cup so much was to get invaluable team experience in a Ryder Cup year,” said Irish player Shane Lowry, making it clear where his priorities lay going into the match against Asia starting in Kuala Lumpur on Friday. ”A lot of the lads on our team next week are looking to qualify for the Ryder Cup this year and (this week) gives us a great chance to show Darren what we are capable of and hopefully impress him.” Lowry is one of a number of Europe’s new breed looking to take their opportunity this week in the absence of the continent’s star names – Rory McIlroy, Henrik Stenson, Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia, Martin Kaymer, and Graeme McDowell. Jamie Donaldson, Victor Dubuisson, and Stephen Gallacher all played in the first EurAsia Cup, which finished tied at 10-10 in 2014, and went on to make their Ryder Cup debuts later that year in Gleneagles. For maybe half of the 2016 team, the same reward is there. Three days of competition in the sweltering heat at Glenmarie Golf & Country Club – temperatures reached 102 degrees on Tuesday – will help Clarke discover if the likes of Andy Sullivan, Kristoffer Broberg, Danny Willett, Matt Fitzpatrick, and Bernd Wiesberger can be relied on when the stakes are raised at Hazeltine from Sept. 30-Oct. 2. What helps Clarke and his European side is that Asia has put up an even stronger team this time round. Anirban Lahiri and Byeong-Hun An, two rising stars in Asian golf, are on the team captained by Jeev Milkha Singh. Thongchai Jaidee is also there, backing up his appearance for Team International in last year’s Presidents Cup against the United States in Incheon, South Korea. That contest counted as Ryder Cup practice for the Americans, who will be looking to prevent an unprecedented fourth straight victory for Europe in Hazeltine. Now it’s the Europeans’ turn. It is also a shop window for Asia’s players. ”They know that they are playing on the big stage and the world stage, and from there, they can move on and follow their dream, whether it’s the European Tour or the U.S. (PGA) tour,” Singh said. ”Having an event like this, I think, it’s a big boost for golf worldwide.” There will be six fourball matches on Friday, six foursomes on Saturday, and then 12 singles on Sunday. In 2014, Asia came from 7-3 down to salvage an unlikely tie, and Clarke is predicting another close match, which would be a good experience for the Europeans. ”Hopefully, it will be every bit as exciting,” Clarke said. ”I don’t know how our nerves will be at the end of the week.” The Queen of Malaysia, Tuanku Hajah Haminah, is set to play in Thursday’s pro-am. She will strike a ceremonial opening tee shot before joining the players on the course. Lineups: Asia: Byeong-Hun An, Anirban Lahiri, Thongchai Jaidee, Wu Ashun, Kiradech Aphibarnrat, SSP Chawrasia, Danny Chia, Nicholas Fung, KT Kim, Shingo Katayama, Prayad Marksaeng, Jeunghun Wang. Europe: Shane Lowry, Andy Sullivan, Chris Wood, Kristoffer Broberg, Danny Willett, Soren Kjeldsen, Matt Fitzpatrick, Bernd Wiesberger, Victor Dubuisson, Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter, Ross Fisher.last_img read more

Vulfpeck’s Jack Stratton Pens The Meaning Behind “Christmas In L.A.” In “The Santa Clause Loophole”

first_imgThe genius behind Vulfpeck and their social media brilliancy is Jack Stratton. Stratton likes to share things. Music, words, videos, content content content. This is how it’s always been, but some of us are only just catching on. If you dig deep enough, you’ll find some of the best gems in the deepest corners of the Internet. Whether or not they are meant to be found, we will never know. (I’m looking at you, DJ Paradiddle).While posted in October of 2015, this excerpt from Vulfmon is ever-so relevant. Paired with the anthemic “Christmas In LA”, Stratton writes The ‘Santa Clause’ Loopehole: Earlier this year I was denied Israeli citizenship. Read the glory:My maternal bloodline wasn’t Jewish. Apparently my dad wasn’t Jewish either. He had misheard an uncle at a young age. The crisis was consuming all my mental real estate. I confided in a friend. He recommended a good lawyer. “You’re a songwriter?” the lawyer asked. “Yes.” “Are you notable? You write using traditional song structure? You know, verse, chorus type stuff?” “Yes.” The lawyer looked up over his glasses. “I have good news. Hidden in the citizenship legislation there’s a loophole. It’s referred to as the ‘Santa Clause’; it states that if you pen a Top 40 Christmas song, you’ll be granted immediate Israeli citizenship. It’s considered the purest act of Judaism in the modern world. Irving Berlin (“White Christmas”), Mel Tormé (“Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire”), Johnny Marks (“Rudolf, the Red-Nosed Reindeer”) . . . These are great Jews!” The lawyer wished me luck and handed me David T. Walker’s phone number.Vulfpeck – “Christmas in L.A.”In an interview with Theo Katzman, he told us “For ‘Christmas in L.A.’, we had an instrumental, and Jack was like, ‘I’m hearing like na-na-nana-nana-da-da-da-dee-dada-da Christmas!’ and I remember being like, ‘Aw man, that’s just like a steady stream of 16th notes. That’s just so many words. I don’t know if I can do that. Whatever.’ Then I forgot about it and it came to me one day, and I was like, ‘All the little children and all the big children, it’s Christmas!’ Anyway, that was a collaborative thing, and then I wrote the verses for that one ahead of time.” Read the full interview, about what it means to be Vulfpeck, here.[Originally published 12/22/18]last_img read more

Protesters on the front lines in St. Louis

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(ST.LOUIS) — It’s been four straight nights of civil unrest in St. Louis, Missouri, after former police officer Jason Stockley was acquitted of murder in the death of Anthony Lamar Smith.The protests have been marked by a police force digging-in behind an acting police chief who, after the third night, stated that his force “owned” the night.Indeed, every night, the arrest tally swelled during a mix of peaceful protests and violent flare-ups; police said they wanted to tamp down on property destruction and assaults against their own.“I’m proud to tell you the City of St. Louis is safe and the police owned tonight,” Lawrence O’Toole, the acting police chief, told reporters on Monday.Powering these daily rallies have been mostly peaceful protesters who have used creative tactics to emphasize their anger and demand for radical change after another white police officer was acquitted in the fatal shooting a black man under murky circumstances.The rally cry started on Friday after St. Louis Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson found Stockley, 36, not guilty of first-degree murder and armed criminal action.ABC News spoke to some of the mothers, religious leaders and students who have come out each night. Some have direct ties to Ferguson, Missouri, where in 2014 the police officer who shot and killed unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown was not asked to face charges or disciplinary action.Name: Reverend Clinton Stancil Age: 54 Occupation: Reverend of Wayman AME Church in St. Louis“It’s not peaceful, it’s nonviolent,” said Rev. Clinton Stancil just before the fourth day of protests got underway on Monday evening at the University Loop St. Louis, Missouri.Stancil is one of the original advocates for young protesters to take action and cause economic disruption in the city’s most bustling areas of commerce. Protestors have tactically marched to strategic centers of the city –- the malls, downtown and nightlife hotspots. Once there, he said, his group intends to cause nonviolent disruption in the business community in order to be heard.“Kill their economy until they stop killing their kids,” is the core of the strategy, he said.Affecting the city’s commerce is what Rev. Stancil believes will force the government to take their protests seriously.He believes the message of Black Lives Matter hasn’t wavered.“We can never say all lives matter until black lives matter,” he said. “White brother and sisters that are standing in solidarity need to speak up in this community.”Rev. Stancil said protesting is one of the ways to bring the youth of St. Louis together, with support and guidance.The movement, he said, has evolved since the protests in Michael Brown’s name in Ferguson; the Anthony Lamar Scott protests are more strategic.In Ferguson, protesters damaged their own community businesses and neighborhoods.Rev. Stencil hopes that this time protesters learn from Ferguson and focus on mass disruption.“We are no longer going to set fire,” he said, as he was heading into a meeting to devise where the next protest would be held. “We are going to disrupt until we get a seat at the table and a change in policy where police are held accountable for their actions.” Name: Fredrick “Fred” Scott Age: 65 Occupation: Retired and father of four sonsFred Scott came out during the protests and defiantly raised his handmade sign that reads, “Stop killing us!”It was a departure from his Ferguson sign that read: “Go kill Isis and leave us alone.”He said he has made it a mission to try to be on the streets during every protest calling out questionable police tactics.“I’m out there to represent the black brothers in the U.S.,” he said. “I’m there to support the young black people or any black man.”As a father raising four black sons, ranging from the ages of 24 to 50, in St. Louis, Scott feels he has a duty to be out and amongst the protests as opposed to watching them on the television.The retiree has encouraged his sons to join the protests too.His sons were with him protesting in Ferguson and the Scotts have taken their family unit to protest in St. Louis.“I try to gather them when I can, to teach them the right way so they know for the future,” he said.Over the past four days and whenever he and his sons attend any protest, Scott maintains that he and his sons follow the police instructions and always march peacefully.Despite the headway he feels has been made since Ferguson, Scott laments that the destruction hasn’t stopped.“I’m not trying to be destructive, I’m fed up,” he said as the sun began setting in the city. “Being a black man with black sons is scary.” Name: Anna Robinson Age: 20 Title: Freshman at the St. Louis Community College at Forest ParkAnna Robinson had never been to a protest before, but the chants and the amassing crowds outside of her downtown apartment downtown over the past days changed that.The student rushed downstairs and asked some of the protesters how she could get involved. The answer, they told her, was to stay outside.Robinson became a part of the cause and now she is also considering a law enforcement studies major.“I really didn’t know what I was expecting,” she said. “It was one of those experiences that gives you an interesting perspective of what’s really going on.”After 30 minutes, she said the peaceful protest turned surly with St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson’s home windows getting smashed and she said she saw some infighting amongst the protesters.The experience has reinforced her desire to help those she sees as disenfranchised.“There are corrupt cops out there, and I do not think that most cops are like that,” Robinson said.She said the diverse crowd of protesters was a surprise. She described seeing Hispanic, white, black and Asian activists, as well as retired cops and soldiers, working in solidarity.Robinson said she wants to help Black Lives Matter and plans to attend more of the protests in St. Louis, as long as they stay peaceful.Name: Michelle Higgins Age: 36 Title: Director of Faith for JusticeSomething about the man in the crowd during Saturday night’s rally didn’t sit right with Michelle Higgins.She said he was dressed in plainclothes and walking with a German shepherd, but she said he wasn’t blending in.“He was clearly a cop trying to keep undercover, but that was triggering,” she said.ABC News cannot confirm the identity of the man or why he was present.But the fact that a dog was walked out into the crowd of protesters hit Higgins hard. She said it hearkened back to the Civil Rights Movement’s past when dogs “were trained to attack us.” Higgins said she is encouraged by what she calls “the season of protest.”The past days have been speaking to not only Smith’s death but everyday atrocities.“What is unseen is how endangered black lives are and how hostile police are trained to be against black lives,” she said.She believes how police are being taught from the beginning needs to change.“When police take to the street they are trained to fear us before they hear us,” she said.After Ferguson, Higgins said that black people became “more and more aware of their political power.”She said coming out strong in St. Louis day after day has reinforced the message and represents positive change.“We can strike a healthy fear in places where power is held,” she said. Name: Emily Davis Age: 41 Title: Mother of three childrenEmily Davis is from Ferguson, Missouri.In the past four days, she has done everything possible to not miss protests in St. Louis.The effort isn’t merely helping but also setting an example to her kids ages 6, 10, and 11-years-old.“It’s the right thing to do,” she said. “I need my kids to see that it’s not okay to stand there and watch … It’s not okay. I need them to see me doing something.”She’s brought her own signs to the cause, including: “Due to injustice road closed.”The motive behind her efforts is to maintain the spirit of protest in the streets after the marches end.“We’ve been out there writing policies, knocking on doors in our neighborhoods,” she said. “We’re coming at this from all directions.”The mother, who said she was still going out again even after being pepper-sprayed and tear-gassed during the previous nights, wants more to happen.“We haven’t solved the problem yet.”She believes the public should “demand accountability” and so-called “good cops” to “stand up againstthe bad ones.”“Communities would be safer, the police would be safer and people from every background would be safer,” she said.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

EL: Lazio capitulate at Celtic Park

first_imgLazio fumbled a Manuel Lazzari opener and wasted chances to consolidate their lead, falling apart in the second half yet again to lose 2-1 at Celtic Park. Follow all the action as it happens and give your views on the LIVEBLOG. Qualification is tricky now, as Celtic break away at the top on seven points, Cluj follow with six and Lazio have three, defeated already against both these teams on their travels. Ciro Immobile was rested and Adam Marusic suspended at Parkhead, but the hosts missed Olivier Ntcham and Jeremie Frimpong, bringing Ryan Christie back from his domestic ban. Christie almost scored on 16 minutes, his snapshot from outside the box clipping the far post with Thomas Strakosha beaten. James Forrest tried to shimmy in the penalty area, but Francesco Acerbi was not falling for any of it, while Strakosha rushed off his line to push a through ball off the feet of Odsonne Edouard. Bastos was everywhere, making blocks on a series of efforts from Edouard and Callum McGregor, but Lazio took the lead on the counter. Joaquin Correa threaded through to release Lazzari down the right and his ferocious finish found the roof of the net from the tightest of angles. The tempo was slower in the second half, which suited the Biancocelesti, but there was still a scare on the hour mark. Bastos and Lucas Leiva gave the ball away cheaply, so were fortunate Denis Vavro was there to block the shot from Christie almost in front of an open goal. Lazio thought they’d made it 2-0 on 65 minutes when Sergej Milinkovic-Savic sent Correa clear and the Argentine squirmed between three defenders to get the shot away, only to then thump the upright of an open goal. Moments later, they were made to pay for that error, because Celtic got their equaliser. Edouard rolled across from the left and just inside the penalty area, Christie swung his left boot to send the finish looping over Strakosha. Lazzari flew down the left to set up Milinkovic-Savic, but the strike was too weak and charged down by Hatem Elhamed in the box. Bastos was fortunate to only receive a yellow card on 76 minutes for his studs-up tackle on McGregor. It was wide open and Lazzari a constant danger, as he rolled across the six-yard box for Marco Parolo, forcing a desperate Fraser Forster save from point-blank range at the near post. Ciro Immobile came off the bench and did everything right except the finish, as he completed a give-and-go with Caicedo only to get the angle of the shot all wrong. Once again, Lazio were made to pay for their errors. They gave the ball away cheaply for a corner and defender Christopher Jullien was allowed a free header to turn the game around completely. Just like the opener against Cluj, the Aquile took the lead only to fall apart in the second half. They really thought it was 2-2 with the last kick of the game when Danilo Cataldi hit a spectacular volley from the edge of the box, but Forster flew to somehow push it out of the near top corner. Celtic 2-1 Lazio Lazzari 40 (L), Christie 67 (C), Jullien 89 (C) Celtic: Forster; Elhamed (Bitton 83), Ajer, Jullien, Bolingoli-Mbombo (Hayes 85); Forrest, Brown, C McGregor; Christie, Edouard, Elyounoussi (Rogic 66) Lazio: Strakosha; Bastos, Vavro, Acerbi; Lazzari, Parolo, Leiva, Milinkovic-Savic, Jony (Lulic 68); Caicedo (Cataldi 85), Correa (Immobile 72) Ref: Bebek (CRO) Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more.

Photo: Snoop Dogg Quotes Boyz II Men In A Touching Goodbye To His USC Underwear

first_imgSnoop Dogg DJ'ing at a party.BEVERLY HILLS, CA – AUGUST 23: Snoop Dogg attends the Prive Revaux Investor Closing Party at Club James in Beverly Hills on August 23, 2018 in Beverly Hills, California. (Photo by Phillip Faraone/Getty Images for Prive Revaux Eyewear)Up until yesterday, rapper Snoop Dogg was arguably the most famous USC football fan. He frequently repped the Trojans by wearing ‘SC jerseys,hanging on the sideline at games and shouting out the program.All of that changed yesterday, when Snoop’s son, four-star WR Cordell Broadus, committed to USC’s crosstown rival UCLA. Snoop wore a UCLA jersey during his son’s announcement on ESPNU, and vowed he would be a Bruin fan moving forward. He even said he would get rid of his prized USC underwear. Apparently, he has, but not before giving them a touching tribute on social media. Here’s Snoop’s Instagram ode to his USC undergarments, complete with lyrics from Boyz II Men’s 90’s R&B hit, “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday.”Beautiful stuff, really. Snoop has a long history of wearing blue as well so he should fit in as a UCLA fan just fine, at least from a fashion standpoint.last_img read more
