* * Anonymous Doc

Friday, May 7, 2010

I walked into one of my patient's rooms this afternoon -- empty.

I mean, completely empty. Even the bed.

So I ask the nurse -- where's my patient?

"He's not in his room?"


"Maybe he's talking a walk around the hall."

"With his bed?"

"Oh, his bed's not there?"


"And he wasn't discharged?"


"I guess I'll check."

"Yeah, let me know."

Turns out they moved him. But maybe they ought to keep better track. Or tell the doctor when they move a patient. (Or at least leave a note.)
