A hospital call room is a dark and scary place where on-call medical personnel may choose to sleep or have awkward romantic encounters. Sleeping here requires courage as it is a slight downgrade from a prison cell. Roughly 20% of medical personnel vanish per year in a call room. The linens were last changed in 1985 and won't be changed any time soon as it would disturb the habitat of bed bugs and lice. Though there is a phone and computer in the room, both have been shut off as a cost-cutting measure. Due to the lack of windows in a call room, it is always wise to pack a candle and some matches. If the call room causes full-blown depression, then it has succeeded in its purpose.
