This month in our issue, our two cover stories tackle diabetic glucose management for inpatients, and what obstetricians want hospitalists to know about treating pregnant hospital patients. Dr. Carolyn Zelop, director of perinatal ultrasound and research at Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, NJ, discusses the risk of placing pregnant women on their backs for assessment or treatment. Dr. Kristen Kulasa, an endocrinologist at the University of California San Diego, says diabetes is ever-present in hospital wards and Dr. Kendall Rogers, a hospitalist at the University of New Mexico and a lead mentor in SHM’s glycemic control quality improvement program, tells why he believes glycemic control is a team effort that requires consistent monitoring. Also in our issue, Dr. Win Whitcomb explains how he sees observation status and malpractice claims intersecting, and Dr. Hospitalist answers a question about how emergency departments evaluate whether to admit, or treat and discharge patients. Our key clinical question focuses on decolonizing MRSA in a hospitalized patient, and we review the latest in hospital medicine clinical literature.
