An older adult was asked some questions by his doctor to determine if he was concussed or not. However, unknown to the doctor, all the answers to his questions were on his badge.

An older man was taken to the hospital because he was believed to be suffering from a possible concussion. To confirm if the man was concussed or not, the doctor was required to carry out a test, which included asking the man a series of questions.

If the man could answer his questions correctly and without difficulty, that would have meant the older man was not concussed, but if otherwise, he would have had to be treated.

With this in mind, the doctor then proceeded to ask the older man some questions. He started by asking if the man knew where he was, and in response, the man quickly said:

"I'm at the Wesley Hospital"

Hearing that the older man gave an accurate answer, the doctor went on to ask another question.

This time, he asked the man if he knew what city they were in at the time. Once again, the elderly man confidently replied and said, "Brisbane."

With two questions correctly answered, the doctor proceeded to ask his last question. He asked, "Do you know who I am?" In response, the elderly man said, "Dr. Hamilton."

After asking all these questions and getting responses from the older man, the doctor walked away and made notes on a paper.

As the doctor walked away, the older man turned to a nurse that was standing nearby and quietly told her that he hopes the doctor doesn't come back to ask more questions.

Confused about what the man said, the nurse asked him why he hoped he wouldn't get asked more questions. The elderly man then replied, "Because all of those answers were on his badge!"
