Dr. Eric Rosenberg is the Chief of the Division of General Internal Medicine in the Department of Medicine and Associate Chief Medical Officer for UF Health Shands Hospitals. His clinical practice is focused on preoperative medical assessment. Dr. Rosenberg collaborates with researchers to study the causes of medical errors and explore methods to improve the quality of medical care. This includes projects that describe factors correlated with specific medication errors, methods to improve inter-professional education in patient safety and anticoagulation monitoring and utilization. He also collaborates with implementation science projects focused on informatics, cancer screening, diabetes interventions and pharmacogenomics.

Implementing Delirium Prevention in the Era of COVID-19Journal of Alzheimer's Disease
Nila S. Radhakrishnan, et al.
Patients admitted with COVID-19 can develop delirium due to predisposing factors, isolation, and the illness itself. Standard delirium prevention methods focus on interaction and stimulation. It can be challenging to deliver these methods of care in COVID settings where it is necessary to increase patient isolation. This paper presents a typical clinical vignette of representative patients in a tertiary care hospital and how a medical team modified an evidence-based delirium prevention model to deliver high-quality care to COVID-19 patients. The implemented model focuses on four areas of delirium-prevention: Mobility, Sleep, Cognitive Stimulation, and Nutrition. Future studies will be needed to track quantitative outcome measures.
Design and Early Implementation Successes and Challenges of a Pharmacogenetics Consult ClinicJournal of Clinical Medicine
Meghan J. Arwood, et al.
Pharmacogenetic testing (PGT) is increasingly being used as a tool to guide clinical decisions. This article describes the development of an outpatient, pharmacist-led, pharmacogenetics consult clinic within internal medicine, its workflow, and early results, along with successes and challenges. A pharmacogenetics-trained pharmacist encouraged primary care physicians (PCPs) to refer patients who were experiencing side effects/ineffectiveness from certain antidepressants, opioids, and/or proton pump inhibitors. In clinic, the pharmacist confirmed the need for and ordered CYP2C19 and/or CYP2D6 testing, provided evidence-based pharmacogenetic recommendations to PCPs, and educated PCPs and patients on the results.
Coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic: staged management of surgical services for gynecology and obstetricsAmerican Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology
Emily E. Weber LeBrun, et al.
The coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic warrants an unprecedented global healthcare response requiring maintenance of existing hospital-based services while simultaneously preparing for high-acuity care for infected and sick individuals. Hospitals must protect patients and the diverse healthcare workforce by conserving personal protective equipment and redeployment of facility resources. While each hospital or health system must evaluate their own capabilities and surge capacity, we present principles of management of surgical services during a health emergency and provide specific guidance to help with decision making.
