Maybe it’s where I live, or perhaps it’s just that people in general don’t give a damn about their education anymore… but spelling/grammar errors on sign-in sheets really irk me. Here’s a few gems from the last few weeks:

- testikal pain
- chess pain and breath
- adomal pane
- intergastrikis
- spidet bite
- diarea
- soar throt
- feet swole
- car acident
- headak
- insomia

No, Not At All

Patient with abdominal pain comes in, is curled in the fetal position on the ER stretcher. Family member begins questioning me on what could be going on.

Me: Well, we won’t really know a whole lot until we start getting some tests back.
Family: Oh, are there a lot of vital organs in your abdomen or something…?

Patient: Some Tylenol and when that didn’t work I took some Ibuprofen.
