Going midnight Monday till four PM wasn't too bad. I had time Sunday to rest and reserve energy to be up all night. Wasn't busy at work so not much running around. I resisted urges to eat and fasted till my normal feeding routine. Even the day shift wasn't so busy so it worked out.
Last night is what killed me. Now only on a collective 5 hours of sleep and working another midnight shift...and its busy. Overstimmed, underslept, underfed, you could argue underweight, overtired.... I had a hard time functioning and very dazed out. I was thinking about it: this is so bad for patients! Do you know how many people in hospitals work two jobs?! A lot of em two full time! After 10 hours of any one task your ability to perform is inevitably inhibited yet I know people who work 7 days a week 12-16 hours. Some pull 24 hour shifts. I'm scared to be a patient in hospitals.
