A Man Uploaded Photos Of Doctors Sleeping On Duty That Turn The Heat Up On Social Media

A blogger from Mexico posted some photos online of a hospital employee who’d fallen asleep while on duty. The blogger criticised him for not doing his job properly.

But doctors around the world came out in defence of their colleague, putting up photos of themselves sleeping after exhausting shifts. They used the hashtag #YoTambienMeDormi (Spanish for ‘I fell asleep too’).

The blogger took this photo at 3am:

‘Plenty of patients were waiting for help’, he wrote

In response, one Mexican doctor put up his own photo with the hashtag ‘I fell asleep too’

Medical staff around the world are often overworked

Some of them have shifts which last for 36 hours, working up to 80 hours a week!

‘We’re people, not machines!’ they declared
