Stroke patient, elderly woman, not talking, we need to insert a nasogastric (NG) tube.
Resident says I should hold the patient down while she inserts the tube. I grab her hand. Resident starts putting in the tube. Patient starts struggling, fighting, waving her arms--
But, wait, I'm holding her hand--
Except did she somehow break free?
Seems like it, except-- I'm still holding her hand--
And then I look down. I'm holding the resident's hand!
