There may or may not be a thread like this but I couldn't resist sharing. This weekend I was digging through my patient's chart trying to learn more about his history when I came across a note by the attending cardiologist. It said, and I quote: "Patient is stable, no complaints. Was screaming 'Kibbles and Bits!' repeatedly upon my arrival. Of note, patient does not have a dog." I couldn't help but laugh. Anybody else come across some interesting notes in their charts?

We had a note on a cardiology patient the other day that read "Pt not eating due to the crap they serve here."
BTW the words "the crap they serve here" was not in quotes...

: Reason: explanation
One of the OB's where I work write funny things in his notes as well. After a section, he started off his note by saying the OR was very hot!
Also, when the units are maxed out there seem to be a shortage of SCD's (call em plexis in that unit) and we are always waiting for someone to come off them to have them cleaned for the next pt.
He will write repeatedly under his orders....."PLEASE PLACE PLEXIS ON MY PT AS PREVIOUSLY ORDERED. IF YOU CANNOT FIND ANY, HAVE ADMINISTRATION BUY MORE"!
Yep, all in caps and just as written above. He is very eccentric and nonetheless weird but at least he says please lol
