Calling it like he sees it: Panda Bear, MD: Blackwhite, an explication of residency call hours.
My last call shift was roughly 6 years ago, and I wouldn’t do it again. I do remember thinking that my patient care wasn’t impaired but my sense of humor was. It was the first thing I lost as fatigue set in.
I may have said this before, but the happiest day of my life, bar none, was when I handed my pager to the department secretary and vowed never to have another.
And, I think residency call could still be fixed. With a lot more residents.
