Excuse Me??

Overhead page:

Code Brown, ICU! Code Brown, ICU!

Easily 8 heads pop out of various rooms in the ER.


"What was that page?"

"Did I really just hear that?"

"Did someone really just page a Code Brown to the ICU???"

FYI, a Code Brown refers shall I put this emergent, usually accidental, generally explosive, and often voluminous emission of fecal matter which requires some assistance for cleaning. Or when someone puts on the emergency call light in the bathroom.

A quick call to the page operator served to clarify the following page:

DOUG Brown, ICU! DOUG Brown, ICU!
