As a student I was once disciplined because I tried to involve patients in a sporting event.
I organised a sweepstake for them on one of the wards during the Grand National, wheeled in the television and encouraged them to get behind their horse.
Only trouble was, it was a cardiology ward and exciting the patients probably wasn’t a good idea. And neither, said the sister as she admonished me, was encouraging them to gamble.
