Man this sucks. I’m on call again today, I am sick as a dog, I didn’t get sign out from the overnight intern that left already, and I’m just plain irritated. There is so much frickin’ paperwork and busywork that we have to do that doesn’t have a bit to do with paitent care, and it’s just exasperating. I might enjoy the ICU if someone else ran around like I do and gathered all my data for me at 4:30 in the morning. What’s even more irritating is that after struggling with broken computers, locked up software and missing charts, the attendings have a stack of the entire ICUs labs and current meds printed out and sitting right in front of them for rounds. I feel like hitting something. Maybe I’ll just run away.
