I moonlighted last night. (Moonlit?) Basically I had to carry my pager, answer some nurses questions, and go in to the hospital a few times to admit people. The beep of the pager, though, is especially horrible when you think of your own, home bed as being safe from its sound. It is a lot easier to be happy about doing an admission when you realize you are getting paid about $80 extra for going in. Which I definitely had to remind myself when I got called in at 3am for two admissions.
I could (somewhat) happily come home at 5am when I realized that the $200 I made between the hours of 3am and 5am definitely made this my most productive early morning ever.
