26hr photo project: "...you’re not alone, which makes it a thousand times better.”
Dr. Lana Rothfels says: “You start the night by getting handover on all these patients, and hear what all the worst-case scenarios are, and then you spend the rest of the night hoping that doesn’t happen. Tonight, it did, and then it wasn’t as bad as I imagined. You always have other people with you, and you’re not alone, which makes it a thousand times better.” Swipe to see Dr. Rothfels after and before 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."
