The 10 Commandments

(of surviving night shifts)
Thou shalt Eat

Thou shalt Drink

Thou shalt not arrive late

Thou shalt get help

Thou shalt not covet thy colleague’s sleep

Caffeine is thy friend

Thou shalt not do tonight what can wait until tomorrow

Respect thy nurses, thy porters, thy A&E staff and thy paramedics

Thou shalt not hesitate to medicate (thyself)

Thou shalt entertain thyself in the 'morrow

Take care on those weeks of nights... I know that they can feel like they never end, but they do and they will. All the very best, Michelle
