Default OT - Telephoning the hospital


A kindly old grandmother telephoned the hospital and timidly asked, "Is
it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?"
The operator said, "I'll be glad to help, dear. What's the name and room
number of the patient?"
The grandmother in her weak, tremulous voice said, "Norma Findlay, room
302."
The operator replied, "Let me put you on hold while I check with the
nurse's station for that room."
After a few minutes, the operator returned to the phone and said, "I
have good news. Her nurse just told me that Norma is doing well. Her
blood pressure is fine; her blood work just came back normal and her
physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged tomorrow."
The grandmother said, "Thank you. That's wonderful. I was so worried.
God bless you for the good news."
The operator replied, "You're more than welcome. Is Norma your daughter?"
The grandmother said, "No, I'm Norma Findlay in Room 302. No one tells
me a thing!"

Oh Bruce I love this one.
My son is in hospital at present, fell of a ladder when it broke and had an
operation today for a shattered wrist broken in six places.
No one is telling him anything, has to wait for the doctor to come in
tomorrow.
He lives in a different state to us too so we can't visit.

She is already yelling at me tonight so I just told her that when I am healed and ready, I will be up for guests. She had a fit and I told her she was proving my point on why I need peace at the hospital.
