Best. Chart. Note. Ever.
"FMR1 H&P reviewed and discussed in rounds. Patient interviewed from doorway but not examined secondary to radiation precautions in place. She feels poorly. Will continue current therapies pending clearance from radiation control."

This woman grew up in a house backing onto an Agent Orange manufacturing plant. They used to throw dioxin at each other on the playground. No wonder everyone in the house has multiple cancers. She's in for radioactive iodine for thyroid ablation.

My favorite chart note read thusly: "Patient returns home to the cat who will kill her". She was an asthmatic with severe respiratory allergies to cats and refused to give up her pet. She had been hospitalized at least 2 days per week summed over the first 6 months of the year.
The note was written by a student who was chastised for his candor.

I will remind myself of this every time I think about getting a cat...
