Hey Pobscast crew, it's been a little longer than 1 month since our last show, but this one is packed with high yeild policy stuff. We do brief wrap up of the Obs conference in case you missed it. We run over some things about psychiatric patients in observation status also. We spend some quality time discussing the Society of Hospital Medicine's White Paper on obs. In fact, the link is here. Aslo we interview Dr. Bramante about what NY ACEP and further national ACEP is doing with the issue of self-administered medications (SAMs). The resolution isn't public on the web yet, but when it is, we'll get it posted here.
