PM&R Doc Shocked to Find Out He’s Been on Call for 3 Years Straight

  • 1.5K

NEW YORK, NY – Dr. Jaycob Pyongyang was shaken from a deep sleep when his cell phone rang at 8 AM on a Sunday.

He was even more alarmed when he awoke enough to process the reason for the call, the ER at the hospital where he worked wanted a stat EMG.

“Why are you calling me?” an enraged Pyongyang demanded.

“You’re on call according to AMION,” came the simple reply.

After his neighbor, a general surgeon, explained how to access AMION and allowed Pyongyang to use her logon, he was shocked as he went backwards though the call schedule.

He had literally been on call for 3 years straight!  Including during multiple trips abroad and countless all-night drinking benders in Vegas.  An hour later, when he shock of being on call for that long finally abated, Pyongyang called the ER back and told them to have the patient come in to his clinic.

“Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday between 9 AM and 3 PM.  Except for my lunch break from 11-1.  Also, I don’t work the third or fourth Thursdays of the month and every other Monday is a half day.”

Pyongyang was last seen walking into Verizon to have his cell number changed.
