    My personal favorite, in reference to an elderly female pt: "I was about to commence with the rectal exam when the pt's daughter inofrmed me that the last fellow who attempted a rectal exam was kicked in the groin and hit with her purse. Pt's daughter remains emphatic that a rectal exam would not be in my best interest and I am in basic agreement with her."

    In a hurry one day @ end of shift I wanted to chart something about the pt's axilla but had a brain fart and couldn't remember the proper term for that body part . . . let's see, . . . I think it starts with an "a" . . . well, so I'll just write "Armpit." SOOOO PROFESSIONAL! (proud of that one . . . NOT!)

    This came from one of our er charts. the husband and wifr came into er after a fight. The husband had attempted to stab his wife with a knife, the wife put her hand up to defend herself. The husband stabbed her in the hand, severing a tendon. The wife then threw an iron at her husband, hitting him in the head which gave him a bleed/ closed head injury. Our ER dr charted all of this, then wrote, " I asked the wife if she would like to take a stab at ironing things out, but she was still too steamed.":roll
