A thread about things I wish other specialties knew re: calling surgical consults. Obvious disclaimer this is based on my experience/my institution, YMMV. Other thoughts welcome, defending consult-callers will be met with 🙄 because this isn’t to bash them just discuss pitfalls #1 We staff our consults with seniors and attendings. That means there is truly a difference between a curbside and a consult. If you “curbside” me then put “surgery following” in your note I am going to be mad and I am going to make you change your note.
