phonecall directly from the operating room (OR):
Surgeon: My patient can't move his hand. I think he had a stroke. Do I call you guys for a consult? Do I call the ED?
Neuro Resident: You call us, that's fine. What happened?
Surgeon: Well I gave him a brachial plexus block and operated on his hand, but now the surgery's over and he can't move his hand.
Patient: (in the background of the call, really loudly) I'm fine. I can move my hand! Just untie me and I'll be fine!
Surgeon: oh. I guess he's okay.
Neuro Resident: so you don't want that consult then?
Surgeon: yeah, probably not. (hand up awkwardly)
We laughed so hard (though obviously, really good for the surgeon to call if he thought his patient was having a stroke) - but I just couldn't get Monty Python out of my head:
