    I worked in pediatric rehab, and some of our patients were with us for months. There was one nurse in particular who tended to be very terse with his reports -- sometimes his entire report on a stable pt that he knew that I knew was "he's fine" or "nothing new".

    They did taped reports in our LTC ward for a while and one morning a coworker came in to "Everyone's fine, crush everything." It's still an inside joke years later.
