Chart Bloopers

It’s fun when doctors commit a gaffe in writing, but really, they’re only humans with a vast array of knowledge and learning at their disposal, and somehow cogent thoughts that the rest of us can understand don’t always come out. What’s more fun is when a non-medical medical person, in this case a case worker, does much of the same thing. Actual quote:

During this admission the patient was started on Plavix for treament of depression

I guess allowing greater blood flow to the head could make one less depressed…
