A nurse went in to check her patient, Mr. Johnson in the ICU who was wearing oxygen in his nose. The nurse kept trying to communicate with him at his bedside, but all she could get out of him was gasping, garbled talk.
Finally, the nurse gave him a note pad and pen and told him “I can’t understand what you are saying, Mr. Johnson. Please write it down if you can”.
Mr. Johnson barely able to scribble on the note pad, “Please get your foot off my oxygen tube!”
