MedPeds – Day 16

Today was a much-needed slow day. There was a lot of no-shows in the morning and a lot of babies in the afternoon. Of course it’s not great when there are no-shows because that means someone is missing care. One of the patient who I did see was from juvenile hall which was interesting. I’m not sure what I was expecting when I met her, but she just seemed like a pretty normal, pleasant kid with some additional psychosocial aspects. I’ve been really enjoying the continuity and the transitional care aspect of this rotation. Also we should not restrict trans-healthcare or gender affirming care to adolescents. I agree extensive conversations should be had with patients and family. But there is a lot of good data to support that having access to these kinds of services is safe and saves lives.
