A male patient is lying in bed in the hospital with an oxygen mask over his nose and mouth. A young student nurse appears to give him a partial sponge bath.
With the patient struggling to talk from behind the mask, he mumbles, “Nurse, are my testicles black?”
Embarrassed the student nurse retorts, “I don’t know. I’m just here to wash your upper body and feet.”
He struggles to ask again, “Nurse, can you check for me. Are my testicles black?”
Concerned that the patient’s blood pressure and heart rate may be elevated from worrying over his testicles, the student nurse overcomes her embarrassment and pulls back the covers.
She raises his gown, holds his penis with one hand and his testicles in the other.
She looks very closely and after some gentle manipulation around the area says, “there’s nothing wrong with them sir! They look fine.”
The man struggles up, pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her and very slowly says, “thank you very much. That was wonderful. Now. Listen very very carefully. ARE MY TEST RESULTS BACK ?”
