So I got a page yesterday evening. Since it was Sunday, I am not really obligated to answer, but I decided to risk it.

Pager: "Hi, this is the renal fellow. Are you familiar with a patient named [Patient I Never Heard Of]?"

Me: "No."

Pager: "You don't know anything about [Patient I Never Heard Of]?"

Me: "No, sorry."

Pager: "Well, [Patient I Never Heard Of] never showed up to dialysis today and we've been looking for him. We've been calling everywhere. Do you know how we might find him?"

Me: "No."

Pager: "Oh."

Me: "Sorry I can't be more helpful."

I guess he was just going through a list of everyone who worked at the hospital and paging them one by one?


  1. You sure it wasn't a surgeon? I've had one that I immediately think of that has this much IQ somedays ...

    I'm awfully sorry, I am hoping that he was on a 30 hour shift and that sleeplessness would be the reason for this.
