Find out about parts of a hospital in this episode. Slow Dialog: 1:12 Explanations: 3:34 Fast Dialog: 15:45 Jordan: Excuse me, my girlfriend was brought into the hospital about two hours ago, but I can’t find her. Admissions Clerk: Why was she brought into the hospital? Jordan: I’m not sure. I got a call from her coworker, but she didn’t give me any details. Admissions Clerk: If it weren’t an accident, then she wouldn’t be in the emergency room or the trauma unit. Jordan: It may have been her heart. She has a heart condition. Admissions Clerk: Then she might be in the cardiology department. If she is in severe condition, she’ll be in the ICU. Jordan: It may also be the baby. She’s pregnant. Admissions Clerk: Then she might be in the obstetrics and gynecology department. And if the baby has been born, it would be in the neonatal unit. Jordan: I’m just not sure where to go. Maybe I’ll start in the cardiology department. Admissions Clerk: That’s fine. Go past the neurology and oncology departments and it’s on your right. If you see the burn unit, then you’ve gone too far. Jordan: You can’t look her up for me to see if she’s been admitted? Admissions Clerk: I’m sorry, but our computer systems are down right now. If you wait until they’re up again, I can try to find her for you. Jordan: And go out of my mind worrying? No thanks. I’m going to find her, even if I have to look behind every bedpan!
