Funny Progress Note

From the chart of a patient who was seen by one of the consulting physicians yesterday:

"...I suspect she has high salt intake. Actually when I went into the room to examine her, she was eating a bag of pork rinds that had 3200 mg sodium in the bag. She was nearly done with it by the time I came in and saw her..."

Busted.

That made me laugh really hard out loud.

Hahahaha! That's hilarious! Yes, that would definitely indicate a high sodium intake!

The idea of eating in a doctor's office nauseates me. Ick! I'm not germaphobe, but that's going too far. Especially in an exam room. You don't know who was hacking and leaking in there before you!
