While that sounds like an almost lovely place to work - not having to wake the crabby ass doc and do what needs to be done for your sick patient anyway? I mean, who wants to get talked to like a freaking idiot by the real idiot and you aren't into misery - right? Plus, this stuff should take place on a recorded line - shouldn't it? Yeah, that would STOP these bullies, baddies and nonsense!

IF DOC SLEEPYTIME WANTS TO DO STANDING ORDER SETS, IN THE EVENT OF XXXXX -- HE CAN GET THOSE APPROVED

Just say no.
