    I washed one once. It survived. Not a single malfunction. They really do run on misery.

    I can only throw about 48 mph. It was plenty of velocity to review the internal anatomy of Evil Bastard (the name I gave my pager during residency).

    Additionally all coffee in employee break rooms should be spiked with Xanax. I keep suggesting this but everyone thinks I’m joking.

    They’ll just give you a new one. Believe me, people have tried. Same goes for “losing” it.

    Is medicine the only industry that still uses 1980s communication devices? These are terrible things. We should just move on already.

    Y’all need one of these on how to write admission orders the old fashion way….using mnemonic – abc vandalism. I was surprised that med students and young docs don’t know this. When EMR goes down.,,,,they don’t know how to write admission orders.
