The Sunday shift is 8:00 p.m. – 7:00 a.m., while Monday-Friday is 10:00 p.m. – 7:00 a.m. During night float, the upper level resident will provide preliminary reads on all emergent cases from four separate hospitals: UAMS, Arkansas Children’s Little Rock, Arkansas Children’s Northwest, and the John L.
