Nighfloat

A couple of weeks ago, James finished his third nightfloat rotation at the hospital. Basically, that means that he works a 30 hour shift on Sunday, and then he works nights from Monday through Friday morning. He sleeps all day Saturday, and then on Sunday morning, he starts it over again. So I thought I'd share some pictures of the call rooms at Barnes, b/c that's where James lived for three months this year...















here's where he keeps his toothbrush, razor, saline, etc.














Sometimes I borrow a mattress and sleep in the call room because when James gets to the end of the nightfloat month, he sometimes sleeps through his pager!



















here's his locker (notice the random Lipitor magnet)



















and here's the bathroom

It's like living in a dorm again only harder work and less sleep. UGH.
