A colleague who’s not usually late didn’t show up on time.
After a while, we got worried about him being missing. Into action go our 20-something scribes:
“I’ll send him a text”
“I’ll poke him on Facebook” was the action that made me laugh out loud.
Colleague arrived a few minutes later. I didn’t ask if Facebook made him late or on time. Suppose I should ask…
So, another use for social media in the ED.
