Hey, Can I Practice On You?

Overheard today in the hospital...

A resident walks over and answers an elderly man's questions, telling him that they won't get the results back of his blood work for a little while. The resident then asks the man an interesting question:
Resident: Hey, you're not going to be doing anything for a while. Can I do an ultrasound on you?

Old Man: [pause] Okay.
If that wasn't enough, the resident wheels over the machine a bit later and talks to the man again:
If I see a baby on this thing, we have some serious problems.
