Darn it. Darn darn darn.
Today was supposed to be my day off, but had to go in anyway.
"New consultant tomorrow, and your interns don't know the patients as well. The senior should be around, just in case."
Yea right.
So that's the reason I had to drag my sorry *ss out of bed at the ungodly hour of 6am on a Sunday. And we rounded till 2.10pm. That's 6 hours of nonstop standing/walking and talking to/about patients.
And on top of that, my clever intern had to bolus a patient with an ejection fraction of 25% with 3.5l of 0.9% saline. That promptly put her into pulmonary edema (obviously, this isn't my patient's).
I had to transfer her to the ICU.
No rest for the wicked; I'm oncall again tomorrow.
Darn it. Darn darn darn.
