Communication with Attending Physicians

To assure progressive primary patient responsibility and clear communication in patient care.

Residents will be expected to follow the specific guidelines regarding communication and order entry as identified by their respective residency policy.

Appropriate communication must exist between the resident team and the attending of record to assure that all orders are written by residents. 

Residents who fail to order timely and appropriate care will be counseled by the attending of record and then, if necessary, by the Program Director or his/her designee.
