(Trying to catch up on old ideas... this actually happened last week... pretend it's today.)

Not a typical day for me. I was the faculty covering the post-operative recovery unit. It's actually not a particularly tough job most of the time since there is a resident assigned to field most questions and problems. There's the occasional problem... nothing big today. Staffing ECTs. (electroconvusive therapy) Done three times a week in the PACU. Signing patients out (i.e. administrative whatever-you-want-to-call-it)

One thing that was unusual was that we had two physicians come through as patients. I guess doctors need surgery too. Didn't want to give special treatment, but did stop by and say hi to both the pediatric anesthesiologist and the cardiac surgeon (who spent the previous saturday on a stretcher in the pump room while his partner finished a surgery they had started together).

This cannot have effect in actual fact, that's what I consider.
