Hi, I'm the medical student who is both working on your team and probably taking that bed next to you.

It's always fun when you walk into a patient's room after hearing they have some vague complaint like, "stomach pain", and, after 15 minutes of talking to them, you realize they likely have some massively contagious viral gastroenteritis that commonly starts with stomach pain only to turn into days of vicious diarrhea and frat worthy projectile vomiting.  Hmm, I see a blood pressure cuff machine, an oxygen tank with nasal cannula, where's the machine that turns back time so I can put on a mask and gown?
