Seen in a hospital note while on-call this past weekend:


And no, I have absolutely NFC what they meant to say.

He has hallucinations about leprechauns, and also has lichen planus.

THE NEW DRAGON IS REALLY GREAT, BUT OLD DRAGON... BAD HEARING?

Out, damn'd spot! out, I say!—One; two: why, then 'tis time to do't.—Hell is murky.—Fie, my lord, fie, a soldier, and afeard? What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our pow'r to accompt?—Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him?

There's no mystery here. The patient was Yoda.

Moose said...

Officer is correct. It clearly means "I have spot and rare little friend."



I dunno what THAT means, either.

Clearly, Dragon overheard him talking to a small child who had asked him if he'd eaten raw steak for dinner (because he had a bit stuck in his teeth). Little friend, I have!! and [it had a] rare spot.

I see crazy things all the time in my current job of editing medical speech wreck. Despite the promises, there will be errors in medical reports unless someone with a trained eye and medical knowledge looks them over and fixes errors.

Things like allergies to penis, parents who are dead but still live wth the patient, etc., are common place.

Try dictating "Allergic to peanuts." tee-hee

Little friend = male genitalia

Rare spot = some type of skin lesion

My favorite Dragon oops was when Dragon turned a Peanut Butter recipe into P**** Butter Cookies. You can figure out what that meant. I was very embarrassed when friends wrote to tell me about my mistake.

I don't use Dragon, and I probably never will.

As to the rare spot: Perhaps the report was discussing the fontanel.

I tried this on Siri with the TV on full blast. (Yeah, I know, my social diary isn't exactly full.)

Anyway, here's what I got:
Lutheran, I have an umbrella spot.

Righto, then. That's settled.
