Night Float

A night-float system handles patient care issues and admissions in the evening. The interns on the rotation further develop their clinical skills and become more comfortable with working independently. The interns do not routinely do admissions. The upper level residents provide supervision and back-up of the interns and do the admissions to general medical floors. Each PGY-1 resident will be paired with a PGY-2 or PGY-3 resident.
