Poor Choice Paging

...educational services: making learning memorable...

Every day at 11:30 a mass page goes out, informing pediatrics residents and students of the location and subject of that day’s Noon Report.  Today’s talk was extremely useful and very well done.  The page announcing it, though, was…unfortunate.

“Noon Report will be in Stagnant Small Auditorium.  Our colleagues in Child and Adolescent Medicine will speak about the signs and symptoms of pediatric sexual abuse in a talk entitled “My Body, My Way.”  A delicious lunch from Stale Street Deli will be provided.  Please come and learn more about this important topic, enjoy the food, and Happy Hump Day.”

I know.  It’s no good.

    I just had to laugh at that! Too much! classic foot in the mouth moment!

      Oh, I know it! You could hear everyone’s pager go off followed by a beat of silence, then a collective gasp-groan… I’m sure the poor resident educational services coordinator who sent the page has yet to hear the end of it!

    Oh my gosh… that’s awful! It’s one of those moments where it’s so bad it’s almost unreal. That poor person who sent it…. they should have had their coffee first! (BTW love the photo!)

      Ugh, isn’t it terrible?! The individual who sent it – who I’m sure is a very fine person – will probably never live it down.

Keep it clean, keep it respectful, or keep away.
