I just completed my 7th night-shift in a row. It may have been the post-nights delirium setting in, but I found myself reflecting wistfully on the strange, scary and unique experiences a hospital night-shift can provide. What else to do, but write an ode to night-shifts, and the staff who keep the hospital alive overnight?
Now I’ve used up all my delirious creativity, it’s back to bed to recover. These night-shifts are doing me in! I’m training for my Diploma in Obs & Gyn, and it’s been an interesting experience to re-enter the hospital after a few years in General Practice. Makes me glad I’ve chosen a career that can be 9-5 if I want it to be. More frequent posts promised when I’m back doing a day job in GP!
