    Here are some of the things patients have said. Sometimes the things that these innocent people say make you want to burst out laughing. Names have been changed to protect privacy (for obvious reasons). Dementia is a very sad thing, but those of us dedicated to the people who...

    I Took Granny Down!

    This week at work I was the talk of the hospital and somewhat of a hero for taking down a little old lady.  Yes, in my bizarro world overpowering the aged evidently elevates one to celebrity status.    It all began with unhallowed screams down a long hall...
