We are missing huge opportunities for RP by not following up with our patients. From now on, we're encouraging that all patients be contacted via IN CHARACTER phone calls prior to discharging from roster terminals. The attached notecard is an IN CHARACTER memo. This change will give us all medical role play to enjoy even when we have no patients in the hospital!
This is why the after-care instructions change was made last month. I have embedded that card into this one for convenience.

Good day and good health,
As many of you are acutely aware, the Dead End health system is in a very difficult financial position. Rather than proceed with layoffs, we are going to adopt new policies that will generate revenue and keep more of our staff employed.
Starting now, we should be contacting patients via phone call and offering follow up care services. The more services we deliver, the more we can bill for. The more we can bill for, the more of you we need on staff. It is imperative that we speak directly to our patients. Do not leave messages! ((only contact players when they are ONLINE. This will prevent IM capping from being a problem and cut down on our patients being contacted multiple times.))
If you have any questions, please direct them to a hospital/asylum board member.
((An OOC step-by-step of how this actually works))
1. Log in to the roster terminal and look at the patients tab.
One of the following happens:
5a. If the patient states they will not be coming back to play the after care, discharge them from the roster terminal. Make a new chart documenting that the patient refused follow up care so you can get credit for the role play.
5b. If the patient states they want to come back and play out the after care but want to schedule it, schedule the patient as you see fit. Regardless of if you and the patient can come to an agreed time to play, do not discharge the patient. Do not make a new chart until the patient is discharged.
5c. If the patient comes in to role play the after care, discharge the patient. Create a new chart summarizing your care of the patient so you can get credit for the role play!
Patients will be discharged by leads after fourteen days. If this happens and you had scheduled role play, you may continue to play it out and enter a chart when it is completed. Simply skip the step of actually clicking discharge on the roster system.
