Your Answer Just Morphed

| QLD, Australia | Right | December 3, 2016

(I work at a day surgery as a nurse, and a large part of my job is to admit people for their procedure, which involves asking them various questions about their health and medical history. This is a very common conversation I have with at least one patient every day.)

Me: “Can you please confirm your name and date of birth for me?”

Patient: “Sure, it’s [Name] and [Date].”

Me: “Thanks for that. Now, a really important question: do you have any allergies?”

Patient: “Nope, no allergies.”

(Five minutes later, when I’ve nearly finished admitting them.)

Patient: “Oh, actually, I get a really bad reaction to morphine.”
