One of the most underrated or least appreciated professions in the world is being a medical employee. May it be a doctor or a nurse, their worth is something that we usually take for granted. They overwork, they don’t get compensated well, they are still on duty even during the most celebrated occasions in the country. Yet, we overlook at these things that they do for us.

Worse, they get scolded for just doing their job. Some of the patients and their relatives are very demanding and expect nurses or doctors to attend to their needs as quickly as possible. We forget that they have other patients and responsibilities, too.

They have sacrificed more than enough just to save lives.

This picture of a sleeping Dr. Luo Heng went viral instantly. Luo works at a hospital in Anhui, China was recently dubbed as “sleeping surgeon on duty”.

But instead of getting hates, he earned nothing but praises from netizens after finding out that the doctor just took a nap on the floor after his 5th surgery during his 28-hour shift. Imagine?

We can’t even stay energetic after being awake for 16 hours, but for Dr. Heng, extending 4 hours to his one whole day shift is not that big of a problem.

He is still yet to release a statement for this. But despite the praises he has been receiving, others are also worried that he might not able to make decisions wisely with that state.

Heroic, isn’t it?
