We residents are often working long hours without a proper space to work at/study during "downtime" or just take a breather for few minutes.
Currently, our call rooms are lacking proper beds/daybeds (at least at Doctor's Regional Campus), couch, work stations (at least 2 per room), study tables, working printers, coffee machine (at least 1 per hospital), HYGEINE!
If you walk into any one of them, they are empty, barren and almost feels like you are the patient there (Well, at one hospital the patient rooms ARE turned into resident rooms...not sure if that speaks for resident wellness...I digress...). The point is, call rooms should be inviting to work/study or catch a breather for few minutues during the day, a "safe haven" for some of us?
Therefore, we created this page to ask our colleagues, family, friends, acquantainces to help better our work environment. We humbly appreciate any help that is contributed towards this cause!
