Trade tricks

Matthew Baldwin, Tricks of the Trade:


Patients will occasionally pretend to be unconscious. A surefire way to find them out is to pick up their hand, hold it above their face, and let go. If they smack themselves, they’re most likely unconscious; if not, they’re faking.

I also liked Newspaper Headline Writer, but the Nurse trick was the one that had me laughing out loud.
