Considering observation hours, does a new setting count if it entails patient populations that were seen in previous settings? According to my ED school's webiste, "A new setting counts only if patient populations do not overlap." I just finised hours in an acute care hospital which allowed me to see a variety of patients (neuro, cardiopulmonary, geriatric, pediatric). I got a call today about setting up outpatient pediatric hours, so I'm wondering if this will not count as a new setting since it was already experienced in my inpatient hours. Any knowledge about this?
