A long day

Even with enforced restrictions on duty hours, it can be a long day for residents. Next time, I hope this fellow can find a bed instead of a chair at the end of a corridor. He probably woke up feeling pretty stiff.

Been there. Done that. In the days before duty hours restrictions, I was on call every other day during my MICU rotation at Vanderbilt.
After a month of 30 hour days, I could sleep anywhere, anytime. Not good.

Watched my wife go through this in residency, even though her Pittsburgh hospital had similar restrictions. Glad you are aware sometimes restrictions cant always be followed, though everyone tries. Thanks for your blog.
