On Call

Saturday calls are the worst. 30 hours in row starting Saturday morning at 7 AM just totally ruins your weekend. Plus you have to come back Monday morning - its as if you didn't have a weekend at all. By the end of the second week when you haven't had a single day off in 14 days or more, time prolongs and you start feeling like you are living in a capsule. Hour 12 for me right now, only 18 more to go! ICU call is tough, very sick patients that constantly require your attention. Plus I have to cover the entire unit myself, it can get very hectic, especially when someone starts crashing.
