how it works
TO PAGE A PATIENT
First dial the pager number assigned to the Patient's Pager. You will hear a series of "beeps". Punch in the number you would like to send and then press the # key on your phone. Pressing the # key finishes the page and makes it transmit quicker, but is not required. You should then hear another series of "beeps" signaling that the page has been transmitted to the Patient's Pager, then hang up. That's all there is to it. As far as what number to page the patient with, it usually is kind of a personal thing. Some people page their zip code or birth date. Others page with some numbers that mean something special to both them and the patient. Still others page pieces of scripture...
Sample Scripture Pages

- Isaiah 58:8 "Your light shall break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up quickly" would be the 23rd book, the 58th chapter, the 8th verse or 23*58*8.
