The Grand Prix Experience: First Night Shift

IMG_3374Ah, it’s another morning! I am now back in my hotel room after finishing my very first night shift at the field hospital. I had a nice breakfast downstairs, and I’m ready to sleep for yet another night tonight. But before I do that, I’d like to share what happened over the night.

Last night was quite benign. it was not a surprise though coz the racing event has not started, and the Beyonce/Aerosmith concerts will only be this coming weekend. So we are not really expecting much people around. All the seven hotels in the island were fully booked though, and there are about 20,000 construction workers living in a compound near our field hospital.

It was about 8 in the morning when a radio patch was received, that a serious patient was on the way to us – a man who fell from a truck, and then was hit by a car. Luckily, the next shift came and the night staff had to leave. the morning staff took over and we left. On our way to the hotel, the ambulance most probably carrying the patient passed us by.

And so there goes my first night shift. Nine more to go!

Check out these pics taken early this morning…
