Journal of Pediatric Nephrology,
Vol. 8 No. 2 (2020),
2 June 2020
We were in the middle of COVID-19 epidemic and this is an experience of 12 hours overnight extra work shift in the hospital’s “Respiratory Emergency Triage Unit”.
A shift provided an extra-night of a shared hard experience; It was a real example of the uncountable hard nights as well as days that were already experienced by staffs involved in clinical management of COVID-19 infection, and nobody can predict how long the epidemic will last.
Keywords: COVID-19; Epidemic; Psychiatrist; Overnight Shift.
