Can anyone explain to me how to read the way call schedules are written for hospitals? ie q11d-20 mo. or block etc.
Masonator said:OOOOHHHHH! Playa hata nice dream attacking me for being such a bad speller that I am to (mispelled) stoopid to be in medicine. This from a someone who can't even read a call schedule and has to go online for assitance. Game-set-match! The ball is in your court playa hata!
(nicedream) said:Hey I thought the playa-hatin' was to be restricted to the designated playa-hatin thread...
Masonator said:The playa-hatin' is going global baby! Now nicedream, why would you have a link to LECOM as your signature? Do you think anyone would even want to check out that site? Do you think any of us are that interested in where you went to school?
T' Dao! You just got served again! Masonator-2/nicedream-1, the advantage shifts!

(nicedream) said:How's your reading comprehension Mason Jar? The link says Class of 2008, meaning I didn't go there - I am going to go there. Don't doctors need to pay attention to details?
Masonator said:By the way, if you are going to begin your first year of medical school then why are you asking about call schedules hata! Are you one of those gunners who is planning your clinical rotations two years ahead of time! Your a playa-hata and a gunner. You are what we call a DOUBLE THREAT!
No, I'm not a gunner, I'm just curious.
Can anyone please answer the orginal question though?
Kalel said:q3d means that you will be on call every third night, and I assume that the 52 wks just means that you will be on call every third night for 52 weeks. Most programs have call schedules that differ depending on what rotation you are doing (eg ICU call can be q3 overnight, while general floor call can be q4 with nightfloat, ie go home ~10-11 pm and nightfloat intern takes over). Regular call is being in the hospital while you are on call, home call is going home or not being in the hospital but within a short driving distance in case you are paged.
