I worked in ED and found it to be a very supportive environment (standard set up of FACEMs/accredited registrars) with great registrars on over night. It was busy and there was a broad range of presentations including a lot of domestic violence/assault, trauma and infectious disease. There is often double bunking of patients (two patients in one ED bay) which can be a little awkward to manage, but I felt that there was a manageable patient :doctor ratio most of the time compared to other hospitals I’ve worked at. The accommodation is on site and is pretty basic, the windows don’t open but there is air con, a studio-style kitchen, and there’s an outdoor pool.
