February ACP Hospitalist now online and in the mail

The latest issue focuses on inflammatory bowel disease, hyponatremia, patient elopement, and more.

The latest issue of ACP Hospitalist focuses on optimizing care for conditions and issues hospitalists might see often but not so frequently that they've learned every possible pitfall, starting with a main story on inflammatory bowel disease, followed by articles on hyponatremia and smoking cessation. Another story in this issue offers tactics to combat patient elopement and reduce risks to patients and the hospital. This month's Success Story explains how one hospital reduced overuse of proton-pump inhibitors, while the Q&A analyzes the impact of pregnancy during residency on evaluation scores.
