What follows is a smattering of the more than 2,000 rather bizarre statements written on patient medical charts by doctors nationwide.
And no. We’re not kidding.
“He is a healthy-appearing, decrepit, 69-year-old male, alert but forgetful.”
(Well, doc, you certainly cleared that up)
“I am unable to arouse this woman.”
(Not sure we’d put that in writing)
“While in the ER she was examined, x-rated and sent home.”
(Still think your hospital is better than our hospital?)
“This woman is numb from her toes down.”
(Note to hubby: it could be a lot worse)
“Lab tests indicate this patient has an abnormal lover function.”
(Well, we can’t all be Brad Pitt in the bedroom)
“Both breasts are equal and reactive to light.”
(Amazing what happens when you unsnap a living bra)
And finally . . .
“Examination of the genitals reveals that he is circus cized.”
(Well, now we’re feeling inadequate)
