* * Anonymous Doc: Oops, wrong door!

Oops, wrong door!

Room 1308 is the attending call room.  There is no sign on the door.  There is a code to unlock the door.  The attending who is on overnight uses the room to sleep.  You don't wake the attending unless something terrible is happening.  That's just the way it is.

Room 1310 is the staff bathroom.  There is a sign on the door that says STAFF BATHROOM.  There is a code to unlock the door.  It is the same code as the attending call room.

This usually wouldn't be a problem, because one door clearly says BATHROOM and the other door does not.

You would have to be very, very sleepy to accidentally open the attending call room door when you intend to go to the BATHROOM.

You would have to be very, very sleepy to not even realize the mistake until you walked into the attending call room, turned on the light, and saw the attending, sleeping, on a cot.

You would have to be very, very sleepy to not even realize you had entered the wrong room when you saw the attending, startled, waking up, and seeing you there, hand on the light switch.

You would have to be very, very sleepy to ask, "Dr. Attending?  Why are you sleeping in the bathroom?" before looking around and realizing this wasn't the bathroom and quickly exiting, hoping he would fall back asleep and in the morning think this had all been a dream.

You would have to be very, very sleepy to then return to your call room and tell your intern, "I don't think the bathroom is there anymore.  They seem to have turned it into a second attending call room."

I am very, very sleepy.
