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

OMG I Love these!

Sorry,...I cant come up with any better than these!:roll :roll :roll

Way too funny!

at my facility nurses are notorious for putting "d/i", that is "dry and intact" under the "color/temp" section. so that would read color = dry, temp = intact?. ha!
