Mexican Doctors Share Photos Of Themselves Sleeping At Work In Support Of Med Resident Who Was Caught Asleep

    Last week someone took several photographs of a medical resident taking a nap at 3 am in a hospital in Monterrey, Mexico. He/she uploaded the pictures onto a blog and published it online hoping to cause a backlash against the hardworking and overworked doctors and nurses of Mexico.

    However, things did not turn out that way. Instead, medical workers from around the world began tweeting pictures of themselves sleeping, using the hashtag #YoTambienMeDormi (“I’ve also fallen asleep” in Spanish). These tweets have since gone viral, promoting the plight of hospital staff across the globe.

    These are the photographs originally uploaded by the blogger.
