Presby’s Night Owls

PPMC-at-nightA Behind-the-Scenes Look at Keeping the Lights On when it’s Dark Outside

It was 10:30 p.m. when I walked into the Wright-Saunders lobby; a familiar scene that on this night was eerily unfamiliar in its silence. But what I learned over the course of the next few hours is that Presby at night is not at all silent; it’s alive and teeming with behind-the-scenes activity.

The night shift is made up of the Penn Medicine men and women who care for Presby patients when most other people are fast asleep. They hold down the fort and function as a fully equipped hospital from the late hours of the night through the wee hours of the morning. While it may be quieter on the whole, working the nightshift comes with its own set of unique challenges.
