Bleep Bleep Bleep Bleep…… then silence

NumericPagerNope, not a cardiac arrest call. Rather an invitation to a meeting on hospital comms beyond the bleep system.

This Thursday the trust is hosting a ‘Beyond the Bleep’ discovery event (whatever that is) at NOWGEN and whilst this is arguably more operational than educational there is not a junior doctor on the planet who has not expressed an opinion about ‘Bleeps’ at some point. Most of the comments would be ‘bleeped out’ of course, which is possibly the most tenuous and rubbish joke of the year.

    Will see you there hopefully. I’ll be going as there has to be a better way of communicating “cardiac arrests” that doesn’t involve standing on 1 leg and hopping up and down to get a better reception.
