Because of a shortage of surgical residents in our hospital, some nigth
shifts are covered by surgeon on call at home.
We are curious to know what is the standard practice in your hospital, if
you diagnose or suspect an appendicitis during the night shift:
1. Will the patient be seen by a surgeon during the night?
2. Will he be operated on during the night?
a) if non ruptured
b) if ruptured?
