Now I remember why residency sucked

Because earlier this week I had a resident-like call : 6 deliveries, 7 babies, 21 hours. One set of twins mixed in for funsies. L&D was distinctly unhappy with me. When I rounded today, I jokingly suggested going to the local chocolate shop so I could bring a peace offering. The tech and charge nurse put in orders!

And it blew chunks. As well as a huge hole in both Monday and Tuesday's schedule since Monday pm was spent babycatching and by the time Tuesday rolled around, I needed to cancel since I was still catching them.

Yeah, once a month a take call at a major trauma center, and it's basically like residency deja vu. Just don't have to call the attending on every patient.
