    Residents are not involved in the care of our PBMT patients.  Instead, staff MDs and fellows are on call at night.  Residents, PICU, Rapid Response teams are available in house if needed before a staff MD or fellow can arrive.  Our service also relies heavily on a PA who rounds every weekday and is available during the week instead of residents.

    Hello:

    How many Children’s Hospitals have an APN Run Inpatient Hem/Onc/SCT Unit (i.e.24/7 APN coverage) vs. resident coverage? (and then the residents would come to the unit for an elective).
