Arrive at the neuroradiology reading room on the first floor (near the ED) at 6:00am (5:30am on Wednesdays) for film rounds. Both teams (TBI and vascular) review new patients’ films, then split up to look at new scans for previous patients. After film rounds, the teams split up and round on the ICU and floor patients. The typical order of hospital areas starts in the ED (if patients are waiting there), then ED “Obs” (1st floor), then TICU/NICU/MICU (2nd floor west), then BICU/PICU (9th floor east), then east hospital floors (in descending order from 9th to 5th), then SICU/CICU (2nd floor east), then NSU/stepdown/3W (3rd floor west), and finally ICU holding in the basement. After rounds, breakfast in the cafeteria, then run the list and head to the morning’s cases. After the day’s cases, or between 2-5pm, afternoon film rounds will start in the resident work area between the NICU and MICU (2nd floor west), followed by patient rounds.
Arrive at the neuroradiology reading room on the second floor, near the Pacific elevators (ask the radiology front desk for directions) at 6:00am (5:45am on Wednesdays). After film rounds, patient rounds start in the ICU (5th floor), followed by floor patients on 4NE, 4SE, and 4S. After rounds, breakfast in the cafeteria, then run the list and go to cases. Afternoon rounds are variable, and your chief resident will inform you of when and where they will be held.
Arrive at the neurosurgery resident/fellow office located on the 7th floor of the Whale Wing (Room W7713) at 7:00 am for pediatric rounds.
