Nurses rushed to get Murphy monitored. THey did a quick physical assessment, obtained pertinent information and prepared equipment.
In the middle of this commotion, one nurse called out, “Does anyone know the age of this patient?”
Just as a nurse was about to look at his admission sheet to check, Murphy spoke up from the bed and offered: “I know, I’m 75”.
