The other day at work I was doing floor checks, which mostly consists of walking room to room, checking IVs to make sure they're still good, and sometimes doing some minor "patient education." I walked into one room where a very elderly lady was sitting up in bed. Her daughter and granddaughter were keeping her company.
After checking her IV, I said, "If your IV ever starts to hurt, just let your nurse know right away."
Her face became quite animated, and she exclaimed to her granddaughter, "You'd better write that down, or else I might forget!"
