charting bloopers

  1. While doing clinicals as a student, I found this error while reviewing a pts chart:

    0130 Pt very restless and crying all night, contacted MD who gave VO for a shot that would put her to sleep.

    0245 Pt lying on back in bed. Looks very peaceful after being put to sleep.


    Im not kidding!!

    SHE MEANT TO "HOLD ASA..."
