From my understanding of the rules, you've played it correctly. Just because you've emptied your hand doesn't mean you move onto the next step of the turn order. You move onto the next step when the current runner chooses.

FWIW, I just read the rules on this, and I think you played it correctly as well.

This was correct, this is a basic tactic used by some of us. When one runner gets staggered you wait until they start their next turn to draw the card then another runner heals them, netting them a total of three cards instead of one (or two, if he healed before their turn).

Getting staggered and healing has no long term penalty other than discarding your hand/discard pile. So it’s entirely possible to absorb a ton of heat and keep getting healed every round. It’s common for the runner in position 1 (usually a tanky street samurai) to pull everyone to him and get staggered repeatedly while the rest of the team get a bit of breathing room to take everyone out.

The HQ expansion does introduce lethal which would counter this start though.
