Room Service? No, Emergency Room Service!

This evening around dinnertime someone from the hospital cafeteria came to the nurses' station in the ER carrying a tray loaded with food. She said that D___ had called down, since he wouldn't have time to eat. But there was no one by that name working today. Then somebody said, "Hey, isn't the patient in Room A named D___?" Yup, turns out the guy used to work in the cafeteria and he ordered his dinner delivered -- during his emergency room evaluation and treatment.

One of the attendings was pretty mad, but you've gotta give the guy points for initiative.
