I never knew it was possible to do a 12 hour shift like I just did. Two discharges before 11, two admits before one. My first experience with a foley irrigation system, and a fresh esophagectomy who yanked his NG tube out 10 minutes before I was supposed to go home. Coffee, coffee, more coffee, and not enough time to pee.
My feet flew all over those halls, the hour hand on the clock was spinning out of control, but in the end I had a couple of satisfied patients, I think. At least, I'd like to think it made some difference.
