Want a delicious cool treat for these hot summer days? Try out these crunchy peanut butter and chocolate chip cookie dough protein freezer bites! They are no bake, contain only 4 ingredients are are super quick to make. They are low carb, high protein and can be clean and vegan depending on the chocolate chips used!
So, I’m sort of maybe starting to figure some of this new residency program out. I was on call this past week from Thursday 7am-Sunday 7am! That’s a long time! However, this go around it was not too terrible actually! I was only covering 2 hospitals this week.
Remember how I told you I didn’t even know where one of the hospitals was?Lol. Well, I got called on a couple patients there last week, so I got to trek out there (and get somewhat lost, but that’s a different story lol) to go see them. Embarrassing though when you are all finished with your consults and then try to leave only to have to come back and ask how to get back to your car! Ha! It was all like:
The ED people: “Do you know where you are going?”
It’s nice not having to stay in the hospital for the entire duration of my call though. That is a huge change! (Although, I’ve never had to be on call for such a long time before). These are some of the things I have learned.
- Wearing a pager out in public when you are on call is super sexy (JUST KIDDING). Although here’s to hoping I looked as cool as this guy does with his pager lol.
2. It is so stressful when you are trying to take care of clinic patients, then get a bunch of pages and have to deal with those at the same time. Especially when you don’t know numbers, procedures, who to call, computer systems etc yet. SO it has really sucked during the day when I have to manage all of that. Some of these days has been like:
I’m hoping it gets better once I get more acquainted with everything. Who knows when that will happen though because after this week, I’m out of town for a couple months (traveling back and forth now) so will have to work on re-learning things then I suppose. By then though I should at least have access to all the of the computer systems. (Yet another stressful thing going on right now, ugh.)
3. It totally sucks when you’ve had a long day, are ready to go home, are part way home and your pager goes off. GAH! Your just like:
4. It’s awesome when you don’t get paged at all overnight. However, I’m still in that paranoid phase where I’m not certain if my pager has gone off so have been sleeping terribly and waking up every once in a while to check my pager. However, I’ll take that rather than the alternative of getting paged to have to go in in the middle of the night. My face in the middle of the night when I wake up scared that maybe my pager has gone off and I didn’t hear it.
Pretty sure that wouldn’t be possible because I’m such a light and fitful sleeper. Oh well, I’m sure you’ll be hearing more about this whole home call in the future. This week I’m on from Wed 7am-Sat 7am..and covering allll of the hospitals. Cross your fingers for me!
Meanwhile, why not try out these SUPER tasty fudge bites 😉 No judging if you eat them all in one sitting because oh I may, or may not have eaten all of them but one shortly after I took the picture. HA!
