Bureaucratically speaking, that is.
Wow- I appreciate your awareness, calm behavior and ability to deal with this evenly. You would have made a great fighter pilot or test pilot. Praise be to you and well done. May the patient RIP.
Had no idea about these procedures. Glad you all gave her a peaceful, dignified departure.
Not only that, but Dr. Bivens also subtly worked in a quote from Monty Python’s Holy Grail. Sublime. The bureaucracy has gotten so ridiculous, it reminds me of something from Catch-22. Thanks for sharing more insight into your world, Matt!
You’re a good man Dr. Bivens. You did no harm and treated her with dignity and respect. You also empathized with the EMTs and your staff, as you guided them and the situation to an honorable solution. Rest in peace, indeed.
Lol, that is a great story, illuminating some hidden details of how the system works.
