Medical Chart Bloopers

Do you remember my post on medical slang terms? Now Dun Tzu on GiggleMed had a very funny article on medical chart bloopers. Here are my favourite ones:

  • History of bipolar diarrhea (You should see the manic phase)
  • O2 sat: 110% on room air
  • Nosacomical pneumonia (Not so ‘comical’ to the hospital bean counters)
  • Discharge Diagnosis: Viral bacterial pneumonia
