With most vets (including the one I worked for) usually there is no one there overnight unless it's an emergency/24-hour clinic, or on Sundays unless there is a boarder or hospitalized animal there. If a patient needs overnight care/monitoring the owner usually has to bring them to the e-vet for the night, and then back in the morning when the e-vet closes unless it's a 24-hour e-vet (one here is, another isn't). I had to do that with my Golden when she bloated at night, she had surgery at the e-vet but then I had to transport her to my regular vet in the morning. My vet ended up having me just bring her home that night instead of taking her back to the e-vet because the dog was really upset about being left and my vet knew I would take good care of her at home and knew how to care for her properly. She's done that a few other times too when I had a sick pet, she had me take them home with me because she knew they'd get good care overnight and close monitoring, and that I know how to do things like sub-q fluids and injections myself if needed...
I've also worked at two dog daycare/boarding kennels. One IIRC had an overnight shift, the other had someone (I think it was one of the facility owners?) who slept there overnight.
