OOC: Official Medbay Check In Reporting Post!
When characters check in for treatment, especially if they end up staying over for whatever reason (they might be too fatigued to leave right away, in a coma, etc.), as Ratchet's mun, I need to know this happened. Even if Ratchet himself does not treat the patient, both he and I need to know who's in the building and why. This helps me to keep my medic IC and keeps me up to date with how to handle happenings in and around the building. For instance, if there's a patient checked in who's in a coma, it's not likely Ratchet will leave the Medbay for more than a few hours at a time until that patient is conscious again. He wouldn't be a good doctor if he did otherwise. He would want to stay nearby in case of a condition change, for example.
Likewise, if I'm on hiatus for whatever reason and I've given permission to hand wave doctor visits with Ratchet, I need to know those happened as well. (And if I'm hiatusing, I'll usually name one or two other muns who have godmode rights.) Especially if he's never met your character before. Otherwise it's going to be extremely awkward if we thread at a later date and I'm playing him like...well, he's never met your character before. When he has and I'm just completely unaware of it.
Never assume I've noticed a log/thread with a Medbay check in or doctor visit. If it's not something I'm going to get a notif for under default LJ notif settings, there's a chance I'll miss it. Unfortunately due to time constraints and how active the game has become, I can't always read every thread and log.
So, here's your handy-dandy check in form for comment posting. Don't feel like you need to give me every gory detail of what happened and why. As long as I've got basic information, it's all good.
Copy, paste and fill in da blanks!
