Penny, a good Assessment nurse was awakened at 4 a.m. to make a house call. She reluctantly got dressed and braved a snowstorm. After the examination, she told the patient to send immediately for his lawyer and relatives and friends and make a will.
When she got home and told her husband of what she had seen and done. Her husband asked, "Was the patient that bad?"
Penny said, "No, I just didn't want to be the only sucker called out on a night like this."
