Today the four residents sat in our office and made up an on call schedule for the next 5 months. The reality has set in that the interns are leaving next week, and no matter how hard we thought life was.....it is going to get harder. Our anxiety rose as we realized that many weeks we will have two overnights, sometimes two days apart. The walls closed in. The more our names were written down, the lower our moods dropped. When we finished we staggered out of the office to head to lunch. As we rounded the corner we all faced the large sign on the behavioral health wing.
EXTREME FLIGHT RISK. OPEN DOOR WITH EXTREME CAUTION.
We are getting the same sign for our office door.
