Day in the life of a busy Beijing eye doctor

On Dec 17, I arrived at the hospital at 7:15 am, and began checking the wards at 7:30 am.
I started seeing outpatients at 8:30 am. The number of outpatients should be limited to 15, but I gave consultations to almost 60 people because they were all waiting for me.
I finished the consultations at 2:30 pm, and then had lunch.
I had a bottle of water with me, but I drank just a third of it during the consultations, even when my throat got sore, because I didn't want to waste time going to the bathroom.
Before I went to a meeting in the hospital at 3:15 pm, I almost ran to finish an operation. When the meeting was over, I returned to the wards to check on patients and to arrange an operation the following day.
If I had only 15 outpatients a day, I would be able to talk with each of them for 10 or 20 minutes, and my work would be much more easier.
