A man hurriedly walks into the emergency department, comes up to the triage window, bangs on the bell several times even though the nurse is sitting right there and says in a loud voice “Ma’am! I need a denture cup real quick!”
I’m still having difficulty figuring out the emergency that requires a stat denture cup.
He never came back after getting a styrofoam cup.
Later in the day, I’m dictating a chart note. A man was in his garage using a power drill when the bit slipped and cut his finger.
I dictated “Patient was using a power drill in his garage.”
Dragon NaturallySpeaking Medical Edition came up with “Patient was using a power drill on his crotch.”
Glad I caught that one.
