funny story

  1. A few years ago, I was taking care of an elderly women in the MICU. She had a long history of smoking. Anyway, our sat probes taped to the patient's finger and had a red light at the tip of them. I was in her room talking to her and she kept raising her finger, which happened to be her pointer finger with the sat probe on it, to her mouth. I asked her what she was doing and she said "Well, sweety, I'm just having a smoke". I left her room fast as I burst out laughing in the hallway. :spin:
