Dr. Sasson arrived for her shift at 11 p.m. that Thursday. Filling in for another doctor at the last minute, she had skipped the two-hour nap she usually takes before a night shift. As her colleague ran through the list of patients, she thought, “I can just power through till 8 a.m.”

Amazing story, and amazing coordination from the hospital. A must-read for anyone in emergency medicine.
