Admitted for NSTEMI work up. Developed a fever, cough, WCC 29, initial trop 1500. Discussed with cardiologist who recommended focus on treating the sepsis, patient was referred to my hospital for treatment of pneumonia.
Arrival at my hospital:

So what next:

c) lay into the cardiologist and get them to open the cath lab
d) hand patient over and go home!
