Below are some actual quotes by doctors doing actual dictation on patients' records (with some comments by me). Could YOUR doctor sound like these? This is really scary! If I have to go to the emergency room and hear my doctor dictating like some of these, I'm going to RUN!!!
The patient denies pregnancy. (And I certainly think he should.)
She does a lot of work around the house. It is kind of localized in the left buttock area.
He was not to lift or drive his car.
For the last 48 hours, the patient was carrying a refrigerator up the stairs. (L-O-O-ONG stairs.)
An ultrasound was ordered on admission of the left foot. (and the patient came back to visit his foot almost evey day.)
Father is currently deceased. (So he may come back???)
She is a small-appearing elderly female. (She only appears small; she's actually 6 foot 2.)
The patient has no temperature today. (Really?? The planet Pluto has a temperature!)
The patient has a questionable cousin with colitis. (Yeah, I have a questionable cousin, too.)
She slid on some oil and her feet flew out from under her, landing on her left arm and back. (Try to picture that!)
She was a restrained driver in the back seat.
The bulldog clamp was removed from the mammary artery and allowed to run for about a minute. (Very active clamp!)
The patient is confused, but the family states that she has been intermittently confused for some time and particularly about...she has been intermittently, intermittently been increasingly confused over the last 3 months. (WHO is confused??)
Excess debris was removed. (And the necessary debris remained.)
He feels just as tired when he goes to bed as when he gets up in the morning.
She complains of no hearing loss. (Well, I don't mind not having a hearing loss.)
(Mothers, you will love this one.) The patient takes care of four children, does not work.
