Starts at 60 Daily Joke: An elderly woman was admitted to hospital

Part of the admissions procedure in the hospital was to ask new patients if they suffered from any allergies.

If they did, they would have it printed on a special ‘allergy band’ which was then placed on the patient’s wrist as a reference for all other hospital employees.

On one particular occasion a nurse asked an elderly woman if she had any allergies. The old woman responded by saying that she was unable to eat bananas. The nurse made her up a band and carried on with her day. A few hours later the nurse went to check on the old lady only to see her son was sitting by her bed.

Angrily, the son stopped the nurse and asked: “Are you the one responsible for labelling my mother ‘bananas’?!”
