Twas the night before Christmas and all through the lab
The call team was stirring, and boy, were they mad!
It started at midnight while asleep in their beds
while visions of PTO cash outs danced in their heads
When off in the distance there arose such a clatter
They sprang from their beds to see what was the matter
Their pagers were beeping as they ran down the hall
When finally they reached them and hurled them at the wall
No sleep for the weary
The weather was dreary
But this did not stop our dedicated team
For saving lives is always their dream
They arrived, all of them tired
Only to find that the doctor was wired
He wanted it now, he couldn’t wait you see
Conveniently calling it…an “emergency”
It wasn’t a STEMI, STAT or Code Blue
So why the Hell did he call in the crew?
Sick Sinus Syndrome, a pacemaker needed!
This conversation…was about to get heated!
“What the Hell!” said Darlene from under her mask
As Adam stopped his diligent task
The nurse had just called from upstairs on the floor
The patient had eaten an hour before!
If looks could kill, someone would be dead
They knew that the doctor was out of his head!
Keith called up Marty to rally his cause
But his ranting was followed by one big, long pause
His words were halted abruptly because
In his haste to tattle, he had called Santa Claus!
“Now, Staci, now Cindy, now Larry and Marty
Don’t call me tonight I’m at an Elf Party!!!!”
“No need to be angry, no need to hate
When it comes to malpractice, I’ll raise his rate!”
The elves started laughing, at the Blue Crew’s endless plight
Shouting “Merry Christmas to all and to all a sleepless night!”
