Now That's What I Call Taking Care of the Whole Patient

Monroe Hospital, the new for profit hospital not five miles from our house has had a really tragic situation happen with their phone listing in the recently printed and distributed phone books.

It appears that one of the main access numbers for the hospitals was misprinted in the local phone book, and the number that is there will actually link the caller to a phone-sex line.

Read the entire story here.

Mrangelmeg says they should just change their slogan to:

Monroe Hospital: We put the Ho in Holistic Medicine!

Just last week I had a funny incident; a friend left a message that she was in a local motel, asked me to call her back. I was shocked, as she lives locally, wondered what had happened and thought maybe she was calling for a place to stay.

I returned her call at the # provided, but the guy who answered said, "Hello", didn't sound professional! So I asked if I was calling the Super 8 motel, no, he said. As I was apologizing, he told me his number and I said that was the # I was given. He said it was fine, and that if I needed a place to stay, I could come to his house.

Um...what? I asked him to repeat himself, and then I told him no, I'm fine, but I didn't think my friend was. Thanked him again for the assistance, hung up.

That was weird. I keep forgetting to do a reverse lookup on the phone number I called!

Um...the friend is now residing at my house. She was homeless due to a little housing crisis.
