yeah, i agree that's what it is. for you guys who get the next day off completely - are you on call by yourself, or supervising crna?While it sounds appealing to some to do it this way (versus in-house), my suspicion is that its true purpose is to avoid giving automatic days off post-call.
Sounds like inefficient use of manpower unless OB is busy. Hope you get a fat stipend for sleeping in the hospital.7a-7a OB non trauma small community hosp, sometimes sleep all night in house. Usually work next day, first one to go home. So... 24-32h shift.
