He was hired by a medical office, and as a result, a few days later, everyone in the office felt they were in great danger. Explain.

He: H? A? M? Were the people in the office actually in great danger? Did they think they were going to die? Get sick? Lose their jobs? Suffer other bodily damage? Is he a doctor? With a relevant specialty? Does the office have a relevant focus? Or specialty?

Was he actually hired as a doctor? Was he the reason why they felt they were in great danger? Or did something totally unrelated happened after he started there?

Anything relevant about his past we need to uncover?

As part of his job, does he:

Make diagnoses?
Prescribe medication?
Perform surgery?
Run MRIs?
Run CT scans?

Any of this relevant?

Is this a true story? FYOI? FSEI? Did it occur in [LTPF list of centuries]? The premise behind it is true, but it never actually happened. On [LTPF list of continents]? Was the man from [LTPF list of continents]? It's based on something I noticed at my doctor's office at home (in Poughkeepsie, New York). The location is irrelevant however, and unless you've been to my doctor's office this really won't help you.

Did everyone else at the office misunderstand it? Assume that most, if not all, of them did. Eventually it was cleared up. The doctor likely understood it correctly, and the person who said it definitely did. Other than that, most of them probably didn't.

So only those who misunderstood it felt the "danger", correct? yes, but that was almost all of them. Presumably one of the few that didn't have the misunderstanding (such as the one that made the statement) would clear it up soon. Was the statement spoken to the doctor? Yes, but be careful not to make FA. About the doctor himself? About his skill? His practice? None of these

Is it a color? Black? Green? White? Any color that is a last name could work, though Green is the most likely, and is correct in this specific case.

Are there any other "Dr. [Color]"s at the office? Is the expression "feeling green" (as in woozy, nauseous) relevant?

Is a phrase involving the word "green" relevant? Something else that's green? "It's not easy being Green"? "Going Green" (i.e. environmental)?

Is it a part of a longer word? Or place name? "Greenland"? "Greensleeves"?

Were they paging him? Did people think the pager was announcing a "code green"?

Were they paging him? Did people think the pager was announcing a "code green"? Not exactly, but close enough.



****SPOILER****
At this particular doctor's office (in Real-life) I noticed on the list of emergency codes that instead of the normal "Code [Color]" format, the code for dangerous individual (aka intruder) in the building was "Paging Dr. Green" presumably for security purposes, since "Code Green" could cause the intruder to panic and endanger lives. Now comes in our FMI scenario. Dr. Green gets hired, they page him, say "Paging Dr. Green" and people believe there is a dangerous individual in the building (not yet knowing the real Dr. Green). Good job everyone, especially Noel for the final jump.
