day 2 on the NICU and i *just* got home. yes, that is a 13 hr day. and yes, i still have work (prep for tomorrow) to do from home (not sure if computerized records is a + or – here).
the funny thing is, i quite like being in the hospital, and as crazy as today was, it’s not like i didn’t like what i was doing (checking on kiddos, ordering meds, calling consultants, discharging pts, answering nurses’ questions…). i just hate being so inefficient. hopefully i’ll get the swing of things soon so that i can have a lot more fun on this rotation.
ps being able to write orders without needing someone to cosign is awesome
pps i still need to get used to being called “dr”
