But it affects patient care!

Client: I need you to come fix this equipment ASAP. This affects patient care!

Me: How long has the equipment been down?

Client: Over a year now.

Me: And this is only now affecting patient care? Sorry, but it doesn’t meet the standards. We’ll get to you when we can.

  1. This sounds SOOOOO familiar – except around here it’s usually an e-mail with copies to as many bosses as possible to try to make you look bad because, “I haven’t been able to do my job for (insert time frame here)!!!” If I don’t have a ticket in the help desk or at least an e-mail, you can go pound sand.
