28 -- eternal medicine
I start this hallowed rotation in the morning hour.
I did well here as a student, and I am looking forward to being on night call for three weeks straight.
I'm not really joking: this likely means no rounding with attendings and having a regular (not normal) schedule.
I have already gotten ~10 pages today, and I don't start 'till tomorrow.
I got paged while getting my pre-rotation haircut.
[Thick southern accents throughout]
Me: "This is Dr. S------, I'm returning a page."
Random Phonecall taker: "DR. SANLESIA -- anyone page DR.SANDLEGE?!!!
'just a minute'
Nurse: "Dr. S-------, are you taking care of Ms. Jonston?"
Nurse: [speaking hurriedly] "Well she needs a consent . . . . . . ."
Me: [interrupting] "I am not on service as of yet."
Murse: ". . . Oh (pause)
Me: Continues generic conversation with barber.
