The worker fixed the dry wall on the bed wall but He made a mistakes and put the dry wall on the bed door. How do I remove the dry wall?

If it's regular pre mixed joint compound it will be water soluble. If it was a setting compound you'd likely have to chip and sand it off

Any chance of getting him back to clean up his mess?

That's drywall compound, not drywall, huge difference.
Wet it down and wipe it off.
OK what's a "bed wall"?

Bob...why do you ask questions, then refuse to listen to the answers? If it's regular pre-mix compound, a wet rag (no soap, no goof-off, just warm/hot water) and some rubbing should take it off. If it doesn't it's a setting compound that will need to be chipped/sanded off.

If that doesn't work, you'll have to evacuate the house and burn the place down. I'M KIDDING!

And it's not dry wall, it's joint compound!
