An elderly patient has been admitted following a cardiac arrest, but her main problem now is confusion. As I walk past her chair today, she hails me and asks, "Do they smell like rats?"
"Um ... do what smell like rats?" I ask
"The rats themselves?"
"Which rats?"
"The rats you people have got"
We eventually decide that neither of us can smell rats right now, and agree that "those men" must have got rid of them. What a relief.
