Welcome to Chicago Trauma

Hi all,

This is Patti at Christ. I've created this blog for the UIC residents that rotate on the trauma service at Christ in Oak Lawn, IL. This blog has been created to encourage medical education amongst residents, attendings, medical students, nurses and all other medical providers.

The rules of engagement

  1. No explicit sexual communicate (Suck my dick - Bad)
  2. The postings are opinion (For non-medical readers please don't hold viewed posted on the blog as standard medical practice)
  3. Be polite to all participants of the blog (You're a dick - Bad)
  4. Maintain HIPPA when discussing cases (Don't use room #'s or unit names, etc)

Thanks much and enjoy
