The Dexter Nursing Home

The Dexter Nursing Home regulations made it mandatory to have a wheel chair for patients being discharged.

Alice, the trainee nurse, found an old guy already dressed and seated on the bed with a suitcase at his feet. Alice offered help but the old man insisted he could make it on his own and didn't need help to leave the hospital.

Alice reminded him that she had to follow rules, so he reluctantly let the nurse wheel him to the elevator.

On the way down, Alice asked him if his wife was coming to meet him.

'I don't know,' said the old man. 'Guess she is still up in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown.'
