Last night’s call was… spectacular. In more ways than one. Things kept piling up after a morning of forced inactivity where no one was free to clear cases… then it was a continuous stream of cases including 2 spines, 2 trauma activations, a couple of HD/ICU cases for some random stuff, and a whole slew of medium to minor cases that wouldn’t stop coming. My partner and I finally gave up and told the non urgent cases to go shove it at 5am in the morning… we’d been working the whole day, and we were barely standing.
… and then, there was another case which my partner went to handle. It would have been short, barring certain… factors. It instead ended up taking almost an hour when it should have lasted half that time.
