Hello everyone. I'm starting off as a hospital pharmacist and am curious as to what some of you guys carry as reference tools that really helps your productivity. I know you can find everything online but I wanted to utilize handy print resources in a binder to keep everything organized (besides policies and procedures).

When I log in I open micromedex and uptodate/Lexi. I keep paper copies of hospital specific protocols around (or in pdf so I can just ctrl-f for therapeutic substitution)

Whatever the reference provided by the hospital (most hospitals subscribe to one..not all), and what njac recommended, hospital policies & procedures and protocols. It's mostly online.

But for a new hire, fresh out of school or coming from non-hospital environment, I ask them to read guidelines, CHF, CAP, SSI, Intra-AB infxn, JNC, Diabetes, Chest Guidelines - parenteral anticoagulants & COPD. And get ACLS eventually.

For those micromedex fans, what is that resource useful for beyond my usual go-to of Lexicomp, uptodate and globalrph?

IV compatibilities.

That's basically all I use micromedex for (let's be honest, that's a huge percentage of phone calls), I like lexicomp much better for dosing.

I'm not a huge global RPH fan. For calculators I prefer clincalc.com
