Just like your mom said, nothing good happens after midnight. Patients expect you to be as fresh as the noonday sun, even at 3 a. I think there is a misunderstanding that doctors are human too — with lives and pillows like everyone else.

Our eight-hour hospital fits awkwardly into our hour society, via the adapter of the emergency room. I try to protect my colleagues, so they will answer when I really need them. As the night wears on, my brain starts to slow. Numbers are harder to multiply to make doses look right. I find myself drifting, easily distracted by the quiet hum of this space. It entices me to just close my eyes for a moment.
Danger lurks in the early dawn light. This is when the work note becomes an imperative. I have to hang on for one more hour. I prod my tired brain and ask my team to watch me because I know my reserves are almost gone.

I place tubes with hands that tremble gently from the caffeine and sugar that fuels my last hour. The hour of my sweet release comes and goes, as I guide my new companion to a different sort of bed, a resting place no one ever wants to be in. Finally, it is over. I stumble to my pickup through the early morning light. I slump over my steering wheel as I realize I forgot my lunch bag in the communal fridge. I hit the road, windows down, mentally cataloging the friends I can call at this hour to try to keep me awake. My front door is but an obstacle between my pillow and my cheek, as is my husband.

How to Find That Book You've Spent Years Looking For
He blundered so without his glasses that he took a pair off the face of a wounded nurse, and although they only approximately compensated for the errors of his vision, they were better than nothing. He was to depend on them for more than a month. Sasaki worked without method, taking those who were nearest him first, and he noticed soon that the corridor seemed to be getting more and more crowded.
Mixed in with the abrasions and lacerations which most people in the hospital had suffered, he began to find dreadful burns. He realized then that casualties were pouring in from outdoors. There were so many that he began to pass up the lightly wounded; he decided that all he could hope to do was to stop people from bleeding to death. Wounded people supported maimed people; disfigured families leaned together. Many people were vomiting. A tremendous number of schoolgirls—some of those who had been taken from their classrooms to work outdoors, clearing fire lanes—crept into the hospital.
In a city of two hundred and forty-five thousand, nearly a hundred thousand people had been killed or doomed at one blow; a hundred thousand more were hurt. At least ten thousand of the wounded made their way to the best hospital in town, which was altogether unequal to such a trampling, since it had only six hundred beds, and they had all been occupied.

Sasaki lost all sense of profession and stopped working as a skillful surgeon and a sympathetic man; he became an automaton, mechanically wiping, daubing, winding, wiping, daubing, winding. Some of the wounded in Hiroshima were unable to enjoy the questionable luxury of hospitalization. In what had been the personnel office of the East Asia Tin Works, Miss Sasaki lay doubled over, unconscious, under the tremendous pile of books and plaster and wood and corrugated iron. She was wholly unconscious she later estimated for about three hours.
