Nurses General Nursing


I'm nurse at a SNF. The other day I received a call from the Dr because he wanted an update on a patient. So I answered the phone, I said my name and floor...the Dr asked if he was speaking to a nurse, I replied yes...and the I got "Oh Great" in a sarcastic tone. It gave me a chuckle....who else would he expect to speak to...anyone else ever experience this?

Like you said, who did the doctor think was going to answer the phone? The butler? Honestly!

Specializes in Critical Care/Coronary Care Unit,.

When he said "Oh great" perhaps you should have said "This is the voice of God." What type of answering service is he expecting?

Specializes in Med/Surg and ANCC RN-BC.

Room service, how can i help you!? lol. Doctors are stupid sometimes. that's too funny

Specializes in Public Health, TB.

I think I would have replied " I beg your pardon" or "I am not sure I understand what you meant. Could you clarify?"

What I would be thinking is "the feeling is mutual, friend."
