The 50th degree

I attended to Pyro’s ER patient one night being duty and all, and that night her tumor bled massively and she instantly arrested. I eventually revived her, but she kept me awake all night, having to run for blood and other whiny stuff that will bore you cold. To make things short I finally fell asleep at around 7 am, only to be awoken by the high-pitched voice of Pyro nagging the resident who mis-decked the patient to him, definitely giving her the 49th-degree. He had just come in that morning and I have not yet formally endorsed. So, the nag that woke me up:

Pyro: (shrilly) Dahil sa pag mis-deck mo ng patient nag-expire sya! Nag-EXPIRE siya!!! Nag-EXPIRE!!!!

The word “expire” woke me up to a start, so I immediately pulled Pyro aside and whispered (definitely in bad morning breath)—

Me: Pyro, hindi pa nag-eexpire. Nag-code lang, pero na revive. Na-revive!

Not about to have his momentum halted by this, Pyro went back to the phone receiver and resumed his 49th-degreeing, albeit with a reset—

Pyro: (shrilly) Dahil sa pag mis-deck mo ng patient, nag-code sya! Nag CODE siya!!! Nag-CODE!!!!

After placing the receiver down we then received the 50th degree for the misinformation.
