How's the other foot?

Found this in a hospital chart today:

"She has dementia and osteomyelitis in her right foot."

How convenient that she's been able to limit her dementia to her foot. I wish I could teach that trick to all my patients.

I hope that somewhere that is in a transcriptionist's blooper file. I have similar things in mine. Lots of similar things.

When I read this the first thing that popped into my head was the chess scene from Blazing Saddles. "Yeah, but I shoot with this hand!"

"I know a man with a wooden leg named Smith."

"Really? What's the name of his other leg?"

What, nobody's made a crack about "the right foot doesn't know what the left foot is doing"?

And nobody said, "Open chart, insert foot."

But I did.

If there can be "Happy Feet", why not "Dementia Feet"?

Someone should anonymously slip that person a copy of "Eats, Shoots & Leaves."

Maybe that's what Davy Crockett had in his third ear? You know, he had the left ear, the right ear and the wild front ear...

"Unfortunately, the ceftazadime has been ineffective at keeping the dementia at bay in her foot"

Does that mean she needs a podiatrist instead of a neurologist?

Loren Pechtel said...

Is that her excuse for not dancing--she has a stupid foot?

"Let's eat Grandma!" Punctuation saves lives people! Unfortunately the grandma burger is becoming more popular...

If I ever get dementia, that's where I want to get it. If it starts to spread, I can always get my right leg amputated below the knee.
