Out of office reply

I was working from home one day. I sent an email to everyone involved in the project to keep them in the loop of my status. My colleague who was included in the email thread was absent due to her being unwell. We are aware of her illness and her frequent trips to the the clinic every now and then. The project was really a handful and everybody in the team are so busy but her out of office reply was very timely.


I’m out of patient. I will not be in the the office today and I have limited phone and email access.

Please contact XXXX for any urgent matters



Translation: My colleague meant outpatient – a patient who does not reside in the hospital to be treated, one who is visiting a physician for a routine check-up
