"Are you shitting me?"

Thank you, ERM!

I once saw "blocked breast duck" on a form.

A well captioned picture is truly worth a thousand words. :D

Those damned EMRs!

It's the inability to spell 'removal' that concerns me most! Doesn't everyone who writes in a chart (i.e. nurses/doctors etc.) need at least a uni degree to do so?

Officer Cynical said...

3 out of 4. Outstanding. Wonder if 2010 is the correct year.....?

Packer said...

Props for legibility.

You can still have a normal life without your gull blatter.

ERM said...

Actually, it was on a patient history form, not generated by the office system.

Agenericdoc said...

I think it was supposed to read Gull Splatter removed and referred to an unfortunate incident when walking on the beach.

A generic doc -ahahahahahahahah!

Hey, c'mon folks, they did spell 1 out of the 4 words properly!

And you REALLY don't want to know which part of the patient's body the gull blatter was lodged in.

Is that etymologically related to the Ravenous Bug Blatter Beast of Traal?

clairesmum said...

Did the procedure silence the gull?

Now this is a Blatter: http://i2.wp.com/ajournalofmusicalthings.com/wp-content/uploads/Opus-tuba.jpg?resize=184%2C240

Obviously the patient was too gullible so they had their gull bladder removed so they weren't so easy to scam.

Sepp Blatter removel in 2015.

I was providing my history to the nurse at a new PCP's office. I mentioned laparotomy, and not only did I need to spell it for her, I had to explain what it was. Not exactly confidence inspiring.

Migraineur said...

I've had to explain a laminectomy to med pros too. Thank goodness never anybody with a Neurologits' office

Was this written by a medical professional, or by someone who cleans automobiles?

Richard Bach said...

I remember this one time in the late sixties when I took some blotter and then spent hours watching a gull. Changed my life forever.

Hattie said...

I think it would take a lot of skill to remove a duck from a gull's bladder.
Did I read that right?

Jono said...

So non-medical personnel get to do the charting now?

Matt Baker said...

Why would someone remove the gull blatter? How can you blat your gulls without it?

*rereads*

Oh, it was a removel. Nevermind, sometimes you got to movel the blatter a few times to get it lined up.

Library-Gryffon said...

I'm assuming that the blatter is the bit that goes "Mine! Mine! Mine!"

I think this is the patient's handwriting. Hopefully the spelling was corrected when it was transfered to the EMR?
