Tips 

The rotation is split into three weeks of orthogeriatrics and three weeks of geriatrics. This point will discuss orthogeriatrics. It is on N2 (orthopaedic ward) and ward rounds begin at 08:30 sharp each morning. It is good if you can arrive 20 to 30 minutes early to find new patients (those with #NOF) and add them to the patient list before the ward round. You will be involved in collecting patient data to add them to the audit database. If you put yourself forward, there are good opportunities to assess patients with a reasonable level of independence. Sometimes there is not much happening in the afternoons, in which case you can work on the database or go home. The three weeks of geriatrics is conducted on GEMU (SGB). This is a closed ward that looks after geriatric patients with rehabilitation potential, prior to their discharge to some other location. Patients are (generally) admitted from somewhere else in the hospital. There are occasional planned admissions to GEMU but this is rare and not encouraged. Ward rounds start at 09:00 each morning but it is good to arrive at 08:00 to assist with getting things ready beforehand. Consultants do their rounds on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. There is a reasonable amount of practical procedures to be done if you are interested. Click here to enter text.
