There are some things you just can't look up. There are some scenarios that just aren't in "up to date" or your pediatrics textbook.

I had a friend call me today about a case and she was afraid to talk to the consultant in the hospital because they are slightly disgruntled that we are taking care of our own newborns. Hmmm... what to do? Especially if our direct family practice supervisor is away for the day. Conflict doesn't bode well for patient care.

I know where she's coming from... I've had plenty of experiences with hostile consultants and ultimately, you just have to do what's best for the patient. It can be a tough spot to be caught in if you're a resident, though.
