What Resources Do You Use for Hospital Medicine?

Posted

Specializes in Hospital medicine; NP precepting; staff education. Has 19 years experience.

What I rely on daily are:

Pocket Medicine, UpToDate, Epocrates, and the Tarascon Hospital Medicine

And of course, my colleagues. They are invaluable and each has offered pearls, insights. Some even ask ME for guidance on some things. (which floored me.)

I wish I could edit the title to have others' recommendations added.

I hoped this would answer questions for new folks because when I searched this forum for such data, it was hard to find, if at all.

I edited the title - hope that helps...

I wanted to add another: Qx calculate. Helps with several measures like PERC rule, CHADVASC, Wells score, etc.

Jules A, MSN

Specializes in Family Nurse Practitioner.

Can't live without the EMRA antibiotic guide. I have the app also but, unless its just my lack of puter savvy, I think the actual pocket book is more comprehensive.

BostonFNP, APRN

Specializes in Adult Internal Medicine. Has 9 years experience.

You hit the nail on the head with the last one, fostering a good collaborative relationship with other providers makes all the difference in the world as you move forward.
