Patient was asking for pain medications routinely every 4 hours. She asked 30 minutes before I could give it to her and I told her it would be 30 minutes and I’d bring it to her. I walked into her room with the medication and she, obviously forgetting she had asked for the medication, asked again for it. I said ‘I have it right here.” She gasped and said ‘OH, you must have ESPN!’
I laughed all the rest of the day about it.
