Town Hall Top Three
Three things house officers might find interesting from the Michigan Medicine Town Hall on May 7, 2021.
COVID Operations Update
Hospitalizations are trending down. There are approximately 26 patients in ICU, so micro-adjustments continue. Surgical activity is back up to 90%.
If you are a house officer and are not vaccinated, OHS has walk-in vaccinations available, and for now, so does Michigan Stadium.
As the vaccine is now more widely available, we are moving into the "Pragmatist" sector of the vaccine adoption curve. A conversation with their doctor about vaccination may be the thing that prompts these folks to get the shot. Talk to your patients about vaccination.
Plans are in place to vaccinate 12-15 year-olds when the Pfizer vaccine gets approval for adolescents.
Employee Referral Program
The employee referral program is back. You have the opportunity to earn a $1500 incentive if someone you refer is hired. Please see the HR websites for details about the Michigan Medicine Employee and Nurse referral programs.
