Well I am currently on what I hope will be my last ever stint of ward call nights.
It’s been a while since I’ve done nights, and somewhere al0ng the way I appear to have gotten much better at not caring, and delegating all manner of things to the day team. A great many things can wait 2 or 3 hours when it comes down to it.
Still it’s strangely pleasant for the first couple of hours wandering around the hospital all by myself, master of all that I survey (so to speak), although about 4am I start to feel less like master, and more like zombie, and lurch from job to job and try to find comfy spots to lie down for a few minutes between calls.
Two more nights…
