26hr photo project: "...you never know what's going to happen."
Dr. Anna Schwalfenberg says: “One of the challenges of our job is you never know what’s going to happen. At the start of the night it could wind up being the craziest night of your career, or completely quiet, and you never know at the outset. It keeps you on your toes. It’s the challenge and the joy in what we do.” Swipe to see Dr. Schwalfenberg before and after call (after shown first here).
About 26hr photo project: Photographer Rebecca Hay is a resident physician training in Paediatrics 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."
