I didn’t know Dr. Tamara O’Neal, the ER doc who was shot and killed at #MercyHospital today, personally. But here’s what we can presume about her, simply by dint of being an ER attending at a busy urban hospital.
First, she worked hard. Our specialty is competitive and tough to match into. Mercy is a renowned hospital in a Chicago. She was accomplished and smart. What a loss to the field.
Next: she was a true helper. If you want an easy job with maxed out $$, you don’t work at a busy urban level 2 trauma center. People who choose the tough ER jobs in the big cities are a specific breed. Mission driven. Big hearts. Nights, weekends, holidays, there for it all.
