On the General Medicine wards, our teams have a resident and one to two interns. The
maximum of admissions to the call team is 10 new patients to the service cap of 14
patients, whichever comes first. Call is every 4th day. No patients are admitted by
the post-call team. The "pre-call" team may admit one new patient and the "sister
team" (team that is 2 days from long call) may admit two new patients. At 9 p.m. the
on-call senior resident goes home and a night float senior resident covers from 9
p.m. to 7 a.m. This resident is responsible for assisting with overnight admissions.
In the MICU, our team has one senior resident (day/night) and four to five interns.
The senior resident does 2 weeks of MICU days (no overnight call) and then 2 weeks
of night float. Call for interns is every fourth or fifth day. The Senior is responsible
for overnight admissions to the MICU and supervising the Night float intern.
