The more discussion I have been having with all of you made me unfortunately realize how much room our hospital has to grow. We truly do not have a just culture or a culture of transparency. So many aspects of things that are expected to be in place, simply aren’t. At first I considered this a major disadvantage, but I now see this as a incredible opportunity. With so much need for change, I believe my co-chief and I have can truly make a change in our facility. I also believe these changes can be made quickly.
I know that the change in culture at our hospital will be a long and arduous process. It it has to start somewhere, and I believe it can start with me as a resident. I was unsure what to expect from this week but am excited to have a vision of change that most importantly will benefit the lives of patients.
