Pagers will be distributed during the week of Orientation. If the resident would like the pager prior to this date, they may stop by the EPO (Room 5138 UH, 5th Floor of the hospital) and pick their pager up from Sally Melton or Paula Campion.
Each resident will be provided an individual pager for their use throughout the entirety of their participation with the Department of Medicine. The pagers that are used are text style pagers, which allow you to receive text messages in addition to phone numbers, which is very helpful when you are busy and can not answer your pages immediately.
If you complete your residency, and continue on as a Chief/Fellow/Faculty, you will be able to keep this pager number as long as you are within the Department of Medicine.
If there is a problem with your pager, please see Sally Melton or Paula Campion in the EPO for a replacement pager.
If you need a new battery, you may obtain a replacement battery from Sally Melton or Paula Campion in the EPO. If it is after hours or our office is closed, please report to the main hospital Security office on the 1st floor of University Hospital, as they will be able to provide a replacement.
If your pager is lost, please let the EPO know as soon as possible. Sally Melton or Paula Campion can provide a replacement and have the lost pager turned off so it can not be used by someone else. In this event, your number will remain the same.
We will order keys for all incoming interns and they will be distributed during Orientation. Details will be reviewed as to the purpose of the key at that time.
If you lose your key, please inform the EPO as soon as possible so a replacement key can be ordered for you. The EPO tries to keep a few spares on hand, so please check with Sally Melton or Paula Campion.
