After Hours

JAMA. 2000;284(9):1067. doi:10.1001/jama.284.9.1067

It's well past 5 o'clock and I'm still sitting in my cubicle, wanting to print out a few statistical spreadsheets before I leave the hospital campus.

The man who cleans the offices quietly makes his rounds. He's a relatively new employee, and I don't know his name. We've talked briefly on a few occasions, because I sometimes stay late into the afternoon when my work area takes on a welcome calm. I think he probably lives in the neighborhood of our inner-city hospital.
