then u're probably not doing anything wrong but i wouldn't know. ccs cases are built in such a way that the cases end at some point u, u can't continue managing the patient forever, if u order a consult they will always say u should continue with other necessary steps required even if its correct but the fact that u ordered the consult is what's most important. i don't think it says "unnecessary consult" , instead the consultant will tell you to do whatever u have to do etc. they will not tell you specifically what to do. in the terms of follow up, there are some cases that will require follow up some that don't ( i noticed this is more for ED cases because u are admitting them anyway so no follow up, ) for office cases that require follow up the cases usually end on the second or third visit, if they don't end that means u might not have ordered something important and the computer is waiting for you to order it. nothing is wrong with the system, what u get is what you are going to see on ur exam in my experience. so u should try to get used to it. the cases are timed so if it ends and u put in the correct treatment then u are still on a safe side. if u are over-ordering, the cases might end earlier before u had time to monitor in the ward etc. practise the cases more , don't keep advancing the clock to get results constantly. in-between u can do an interval f/up and minute physicals to see if the pt improves etc. they won't always improve immediately. what counts is that u ordered the CORRECT things in the CORRECT sequence.
