Helpful

Trying to figure out why a lady was coming to see me, I called the other doctor's office and asked them to fax over the most recent chart note.

This is all I got:

Not the exact same thing (okay not even close); in roughly 1998, I was sent to collections by my local hospital for $.01 (yes, you're reading that right)! I taped a penny to the letter, addressed it to the CEO of the hospital & marked it personal/confidential and sent it certified mail (it was worth the ENTIRE AMOUNT)! Along w/ the penny I wrote something like, "Isn't this ridiculous? I'd love to know how much all of this cost the Hospital!?" Believe it or not, the CEO called me personally and agreed how stupid it was and that he and the "Board" got a good laugh! Because I wasn't laughing, I requested a letter for the Credit Bureau just in case but never needed it! If this happened during a time of FB I suspect this would've gone viral? Crazy, stuff!

Bonus for meaningful use.

As a 38-year medical transcriptionist/VR editor who just lost a wonderful acute care account to Epic/Dragon, so happy to find my sense of humor has survived the loss. Thanks, as always, for a good laugh. GIGO still applies:-) even with EMR.

Best VR chart blooper I encountered: "ALLERGIES: penis" (for PEANUTS)
