I was horrified to read the following story in The Age today in regard to conditions for young doctors.
I wonder if there’s a medical equivalent of Legal Eagle or Shop Steward sitting typing an outraged blog about the terrible conditions of trainee doctors? (that is, if they are not too darn exhausted after working 16 hours straight…)
It is impossible to do your job properly if you are so exhausted you can’t think straight. And it’s easy to feel despairing if you’re exhausted too. Sounds like something needs to be done – urgently.
