Many years ago, my dad who was the building engineer of a major metropolitan hospital, got a late night call about a broken refrigerator on one of the wards.
My dad was on call 24 hours a day, responsible for the major HVAC systems in the building and he seemed to be the guy to call when anything broke anywhere in the hospital; not his job butâ€¦.
He told the nurse to remove the food from the refrigerator and he would have it looked at in the morning. A ward refrigerator was not an emergency.
On his arrival in the morning the day nurse gave my dad an earful about all the meds in the fridge going bad. My dad looked her in the eye and politely went on to explain that he didnâ€™t and wouldnâ€™t know what was in a particular fridge on a hospital ward, and that if the nurse didnâ€™t have the sense to move the meds, maybe she shouldnâ€™t be working in this particular hospital.
