I was a firefighter for several years.

Every call at 3:00 in the morning was an older person with "trouble breathing."

In most cases they weren't breathing at all.

Hey, I happen to know that you can be mentally alert and forgetful at the same time.

Ok, I lost my train of thought...

Ellen said...

The patient refused an autopsy? I wondered how that request was made.
You'd almost think the people writing the charts would learn a little proof-reading... but then we wouldn't have these little tidbits to pass around on the web would we?

Haha.... you are so clever to find them!

robmcj said...

Mad. Hope you had a good weekend.

BuccoTom said...

Jeezusss, where do you come up with these things doll? Is there a web site or what? That shit is funny. The last prostate exam I had, the doctor also checked my thyroid (or at least that's how it felt! LOL) Have a great week Love.

My genitalia is circus sized... FLEA CIRCUS SIZED! HEYO!

Lee Ann said...

Beck ~ I agree. That is how, I think, my car gets me to work some days! ;)

Ellen ~ I know...I think I would refuse one too (but probably not after the fact). I used to work in the newborn nursery in a hospital in Texas. I would see mistakes, but usually not to that extent.

Rob ~ Thank you, I hope you have a super week!

TG ~ Hey! I know, some of this stuff is nuts, isn't it! You have a great week too, cutie!

Jiggsy ~ Awww...you are the cutest little...uh, I mean cutest! I heart you Jiggsy. ;)
