It hasn't been terrible, but I wouldn't call it pleasant. Primarily the sleeping aspect of it. It's one thing to wake up when his alarm goes off
The reason for this long stretch? For the IM Rotation, there is the requirement of night float, which my husband did the first two weeks of his rotation, and the requirement of four weekend shifts. Instead of drawing it out towards the end of his rotation, he decided to get it all done and complete. So it's technically his own fault that his schedule is as such, but I understand the logic behind it. Now he'll have the last three weekends of IM to study for his shelf exam.
Thank you, Internal Medicine, for making us sleep deprived. Sleeping in until 6:15am sounds heavenly.
[An aside: yesterday afternoon after getting home from his shift, my husband was paged by the nurse of one of his patients. Last time I checked, med students don't have much authority for administering orders when a patient is in distress. They wouldn't have authority if the patient stubbed their toe! The nurse's reason for paging him? His was the only handwriting she could read in the file (obvious med student mistake!). He told her to page the resident on call. A few minutes later, she paged him again and said she couldn't find who was on call. So my husband looked up the contact info for the resident and let the nurse interrupt her Sunday afternoon instead of his ;) ]
What's the longest consecutive stretch of days that your husband has had to show up at the hospital/to work?
