On Friday we had an orientation to prepare us for the start of second-year. They had all of the interns gather in a conference room, and we talked about the responsibilities of being a resident, having to motivate the new interns, etc.
Today I found out that while we were all in the orientation, and the residents were pulling double-duty for a few hours to cover for us, there was a code called in one of the hospitals.
And there weren't enough doctors around to perform CPR.
And the patient died.
Because we were all in orientation.
This shouldn't be funny-- this isn't funny-- except it is. "Why'd the patient die?" "Not enough doctors." "Where were the doctors?" "Orientation."
