I was giving a patient some morphine he had been asking for and I finally received an order. Mind you, my patient was nonverbal due to having a tracheostomy and had to write on a pad of paper to communicate. As I was giving the morphine, Jerry Springer was on the TV. I couldn't help myself but to make fun of the show a bit and state my disbelief that the show was still airing. He then nudged me with his elbow and began writing on his pad of paper. "I have 13 children with 11 baby mama's" is what he wrote! I lost it there! Best part he was 68, nonverbal, and with a brand new girlfriend. Or maybe a new baby mama?
