A recap of the April Medical Staff Executive meeting

I want to take this opportunity to wish you a Happy Spring. I look forward to seeing you at the Annual Meeting on June 25. You will have the opportunity to meet the new chairman of our Board of Directors, Mr. Robert Trabucco. You also can see the revisions to the bylaws and hear about the year in review.

At our last Medical Staff Executive Committee meeting, we met Mr. Trabucco, who pledged to work with the Medical Staff on behalf of the Board of Directors.

We also approved renaming “Division of Genetics” to the “Division of Genetic and Genomic Medicine.” We approved new members to the medical staff and approved changes in delineation of privileges.

Just a few housekeeping reminders. As you are aware, we approved a policy that all providers be BLS certified by January 2015. If you have not yet done so, sign up through careLearning to receive the certification. If you have completed it, please send us a copy of your card.

Also, it has come to my attention that consultants in the hospital are not always called about their consults by the physician or team requesting them. It cannot be assumed that your consultant is going to notice a new consult in their patient list in a timely manner. He or she should be notified personally. Clerks on the floor do not call in your consults since you enter them electronically.

Thank you for all you do to provide high quality care here at Akron Children’s Hospital.
