Early Monday at Grumpy's House-of-Brains

When Mary makes reminder calls for the next day she notes on the schedule as to whether she confirmed the appointment with the patient, or a family member, or left them a voice mail, or whatever.

So looking over today's schedule, I saw the following entry:

"1:00 - Suzy Jones, referred for hearing problems. Phone kept ringing, no one answered."

At 5:00 on a Monday morning it gave me the giggles.

Now that's a bonafide referral!

Yup, I got a chuckle out of that as I've been hearing impaired most of my life. Not quite sure why one would go to a neurologist for hearing problems.

: )

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Annie- I just see them. Someone else writes the referral.

LoL...thought I was going to need a Grumpy appointment myself...spent all day yesterday recovering from a cold and very dizzy...was miserable and kept thinking that Dr. Grumpy could make it better...think I read your blog too much? :)

Isn't that kind of like sending an email to someone telling them that their network is down?

I gotta think Mary did that on purpose.
