"Don't answer the Knock"

"Don't answer the Knock"
Virgilio F. De leon Jr. MD

A New Year. A new Ghost story.

This is one I got from my Nurse at Sykes Shaw 500 Beverly Platon. First day and we ended up chatting about Ghosts.It was that kind of duty.

Among the ICU staff of San Juan Medical Center there is a famous warning: "If someone knocks and does not use the buzzer , do not open the door."

There was one particular incident where a fresh nurse on rotation did not heed this particular advise and the result was a Code Blue. It was not even the first time that this has happened. 

Apparently Death actually knocks at the door but cannot use the doorbell. So if you ever rotate there. Consider yourself warned.
