  • The Bathtub Test for Geriatrics

    During a visit to my doctor, I asked him, "How do you
    determine whether or not an older person should be
    put in a Nursing Home?"

    "Well," he said, "we usually make use of the bathtub test."

    "Bathtub test," I replied?

    "Yes, we fill up a bathtub, then we offer the person a tea-
    spoon, a teacup and a bucket to empty the bathtub."

    "Oh, I understand," I said. "A normal person would use the
    bucket because it is bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

    "No" he said. "A normal person would pull the plug.

    "Would you like a bed near a window?"

    (I'm so glad that I only have a shower!)
