Why is it insomnia gets worse when you're on-call?
I already know I'm not going to get called in; it wasn't busy enough at work.
Yes, it can get pretty busy in a short amount of time, but nothing so bad that they would really have to call me back.
The only way that would happen is if they had to call in a surgery crew. Somewhere in the 2 to 3 O'clock hour, there's a point that if a patient needs surgery, they will usually try to put it off 'til the first thing in the morning. If it's an instance where a patient cannot be stabilized and wait 'til morning, then chances are it's a surgery case which doesn't require x-ray.
So, here I am, still awake.
