my registrar and I sat in ED at 3am and he just went “I want to cry” I made an unintelligible sound and we moved on
heck of a night to finish on, first he went to theatre and left his bleep
cue loads of angry referrers leaving passive aggressive mesages in the notes
then the urine analyser stopped working, then the BLOOD analyser stopped working????
then a crash bleep for “cardiac arrest in CT” and the reg thought it was one of our patients
it sure beats the night where three people got unwell the hour before handover tho
or when I went to assess a patient, left the ward, and was bleeped 5 mins later with a much more worrying update
overall still enjoyed it though, much better vibes than medical nights – I guess partly because we know what's going on with each person on the list, the chance to go between the wards and ED, and seeing patients get better...
