    the distribution

    Whenever I have a hospital visit, the receptionist distributes ticket numbers to the outpatients. Have you distributed all numbers? This this the second time I have missed the distribution.

    Is the distribution sufficient or should I add something else?

    We wouldn't use "distribution" in this way. We have an expression, and would say, "...I have missed out". You could also say, "...I haven't gotten one".

    ...or, in BrE, 'I haven't got one'.

    Typo alert.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
