26hr photo project: "...I ran into some co-residents and they had pizza."
Dr. Kaspar Ng says: "I was finishing an admission note and a code ** came in, luckily was ok. Then I was about to have dinner and I got called for a child upstairs who was really sick. We didn’t actually do nighttime rounds till 10pm. There was a family we spent a bit more time with for a difficult situation. It was 11:30pm, I finally finished my notes. 12:30pm I went looking for food in Emergency and there was no luck, but then I ran into some co-residents and they had pizza. That was a really bright turn of events. No big issues after that - got a couple hours of sleep, so overall it was a good night."

About 26hr photo project: Photographer Rebecca Hay is a resident physician training in Pediatrics in Calgary. "Physicians commonly work shifts up to 26 hours long—often without breaks or sleep, caring for families and vulnerable people. A lot can happen in that time, both beautiful and exhausting. I started the photo project "26hr" to highlight the human aspect of medicine and the incredible people working these shifts, and to explore their stories and perceptions."
