    Intern charted that the attending's plan was to "Monitor eyes and nose" on patient with heart failure. What he'd said was "I's and O's.":icon_roll

    I was taking some supplies for hypothermia post arrest to the ER the last night I worked and they didn't need them. The doc was saying in regards to a pt coming down off amphetamines that we should get him a tv. I said are you ordering a stat TV and he said yes, and he should watch bubble guppies. I told him that was torture and the doc said that he would find it awesome and calm down. Seemed like a cool doc.

    this one is the fault of the dictation transcriptionist:
    on the H&P' "the pt is a stay at home milk of magnesia"
    I wonder how many of these errors are due to transcription or scribe mis-interpretation. Still hilarious, so keep em coming!

    Under PMH for a (very much alive) 3 year old: Still birth.

    Was she a still birth who was somehow resuscitated? Did her mother have a still birth? Still trying to figure that one out...

    As we were reviewing a chart on the Alzheimer's unit - this notation stood out:
    "resident very agitated - yelling profound statements" Profane yes - profound no ..I doubt he was yelling "To be or not to be....that is the question...."
    Omg! I laughed out loud on this one.....to be or not to be, that is the question....I keep forgetting to ask thee.

    MD actually wrote the following order:

    Connect IV to F/C

    I guess he had recycling on his mind!
