Resident of the Quarter

Congratulations to Dr. Jessica Ivey, the Resident of the Quarter (ROQ) for January  – March 2016!  Dr. Sudha Ved nominated Dr. Ivey “for her exceptional care in taking care of a very difficult intubation scenario and a very difficult uncooperative Down’s syndrome patient.  She had prepared well for the case knowing the previous difficulties with the patient. She had even looked up where the IV had been placed the last time and expeditiously started the IV right away in the same site, knowing the patient had difficult IV access.  In addition I found her judgment during the process of facing unexpected additional difficulty in the intubation process was on target.  She knew what was happening and was able to respond right away help appropriately.”
