The beauty of being a doctor.
No one could argue what time u come to work and what time u go to rest and what time u can go back home.
As a doctor... It's hard to decide our daily schedule.
We always come to work early in the morning, hoping that we could finish our job and go back on time.
But then, it hardly works that way.
We come to work @ 730 and if we r lucky we could be home by 6pm.
In most cases... We could be home by dinner.
Should a patient comes at 450pm.... It's not the doctor on call duty yet...
So we have to settle it. Hence we ended up going back home by 6 or 7pm.
And we cannot claim overtime on that..
Worst case scenario would be the day after on call.
I start my oncall at 8am on monday.
I ll be working non stop until 8am on tuesday.
Then, I have to continue working from 8am on tuesday until 5pm on tuesday. So that would be about more than 30 hours of working.
And if the situation like above happened and we have to work till 8 or 9 pm...
So that explain why doctors are quite agitated at times
But I m happy with my life
