Spooning with Grandma

Called to a local senior facility for a patient with a “spoon stuck in her mouth with severe hemorrhaging.” We get there and the woman had one of those rubber-covered end spoons suctioned under her tongue in her lower pallate and had broken her tooth when she bit down on the metal handle and staff couldn’t get it out. It took us about 3 minutes to pry it out and she never bled.
