Our clinical duty this week

We had begun our clinical duty for this week last Wednesday. Our area is in St. Anthony Mother and Child Hospital in San Nicholas, Pardo.

We had started late this week because Monday was a holiday (a rest day after the Sinulog), and on Tuesday we were sent home because we reported on the night shift instead of on the morning shift. We were not informed earlier so it was not our fault.

The hospital is a small one. It basically serves obstetric, gynecologic and pediatric cases. It's an extension of the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center.

It happened that the Cebu City Memorial Medical Center is close this week for cleaning, so all DR cases go to St. Anthony.

Today we had three deliveries. Solo namo ang cases because no other school was on duty. But last night there were eight deliveries and no school was around!

We were sorry for the third baby because he had hydrocephalus. His fontanel was bleeding, too. He has also aspirated a lot of meconium. The mother had a very long labor (more than 24 hours).

We hope we can handle more cases before the shift ends tomorrow. On Saturday we will have a case conference. We haven't had a case conference for a very long time.
