An elderly man was admitted to a nursing home by his family due to his weakening condition. The next morning, the nurse saw him leaning to the extreme left in his chair, so she propped a pillow under that side. Later, she noticed him leaning to the right, so she put a pillow there, too. Soon, he was leaning forward, so out came the vest restraint.
His family came to see him, and the nurse explained her efforts to keep him from hurting himself.
The family asked the gentleman how he was doing. “The food is good, the nurse is real nice, but she doesn’t like people to fart around here.”
