    We had computer charting where I used to work and I hit submit without reading my entry first. I am an OB nurse. It partially read " O2 remains on FOB at bedside. Report to oncoming sh*t. Forgot a comma before FOB and an "f" in the last word. Now it is on record forever :-I

    How about this one......

    pt has not passed urine post-op, MD notified of same. IDC remains insitu, patent and draining well.

    "Transfer patient to ICU.

    "Pt. is a/o X3, cooperative with care, pleasant, SOB."

    I work in a busy surgical ICU and a FELLOW (5th year resident), ordered.... Tylenol 650mg IV q4-6hours prn.
    I asked the doc, if he wanted me to titrate to fevers.
    my co-workers still laugh at it today. I only wished I saved a copy of the actual order.
