Overheard on the ward

Nursing behind me is ranting about the woman who called her at 0740 to
complain that Home Care wasn't there to teach her how to give evening
meds.  They said they'd be there in the morning.  It's morning.  They're not here.  And the best part?  Not even our home care company.  Not even our city
"So you called our inpatient peds unit to complain about a problem at
$other_city_hospital home care?"   Perhaps, she suggested, you should
contact them.

"I'm going to make a blog.  I'm going to call it Don't be crazy unless you pay your bills."

Best medication refusal ever, she says.  We won't approve a three day course of this antibiotic.  You have to have a full two-week course or we won't pay.

And yesterday, apparently, the operator misheard "please page Anesthesia to PICU".  And overhead comes Any anesthesiologist to the deli, stat!
