I'm a student nurse and on my placement I was working on the ward with all the side rooms so we get people with infections. We had a patient who was diagnosed to have TB. Every morning volunteers come to the ward with the newspaper trolley and ask everyone if they want anything but they didn't ask him as he has an infection. When administering medication I asked if he mentioned that he likes to read the paper so on my break I went to the hospital shop and bought him a newspaper. It was nice to see a smile on his face :)
