Patient died...

One of my patient died over the weekend. Must say its a weird experience even though my team was only following her as consultants rather than the primary. Came in the morning, and she wasn't in her room. I checked on the computer and it said she was transferred to the ICU. Went to the ICU saw the cardiology fellow and asked him if she is in the ICU. He told me she was gone.... Made me wonder if I should have come in this weekend, not that it would have changed anything as she was checked on by multiple physicians throughout the day but still... Could I have done something different?  I don't know. It will defintely affect the way I see my patients from now on.
