Hospital regulations require a wheel chair for patients being discharged. However, while working as a student aide, John found one elderly gentleman already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet, who insisted he didn’t need John’s help to leave the hospital.
After a short talk about rules being rules, he reluctantly let John wheel him to the elevator.
On the way down John asked him if his wife was meeting him. I don’t know,” he said. “She is till upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown.”
