A woman called Mount Sinai Hospital. She said, "Mount Sinai Hospital? Hello, I'd like to talk with the person who gives the information about the patients. But I don't want to know if the patient is better or doing like expected, or worse. I want all the information from top to bottom – from A to Z."
The voice on the other line said, "Would you hold the line please, that's a very unusual request." Then a very authoritative voice came on and said, "Are you the lady who is calling about one of the patients?"
"Yes, darling!” she said, “I'd like to know the information about Sarah Smith in Room 302."
He said "Smith. Let me see. Oh yes, Mrs. Smith is doing very well. In fact, she's had two full meals, her doctor says if she continues improving as she is, he is going to send her home Tuesday at twelve o'clock."
The woman said "Thank G-d! That's wonderful! She's going home at twelve o'clock! I'm so happy to hear that. That's wonderful news."
The guy on the other end says: "From your enthusiasm, I take it you must be one of the close family.”
"What close family?” she answered, “I'm Sara Smith! My doctor don't tell me nothing."
