and everything is going well, thanks. It’s what I wanted, a busier ED with better doc coverage. Today was probably the easiest day I’ve had, with several slack periods, and within 8 hours I had seen treated and dispo’d 27 patients. Several of these were really sick folks, going to the OR, to the ICU, etc. In may last job, 27 in 12 hours would have left me physically exhausted and emotionally ragged, but this one is different. So far, so good.
Too bad I had to get this as my second job after residency; however, would I have appreciated it then?
