FAVOURITE FINDS IN MEDICAL CHARTS RECENTLY

I can't help giggling sometimes. South African healthcare workers are such a diverse bunch.
  1. 1.
    This orthopod grew tired of having to describe buddy-strapping in words.
  2. 2.
    Anne of Green Gables?!?!? Is that you??
  3. 3.
    This intern was really freaked out by seeing tapeworms coming from stabbed and eviscerated bowel.
  4. 4.
    This artistic rendition.
  5. 5.
    It's not nice to make fun, but I did giggle a bit at this rendition of "miscarriage". To be fair, the majority of South African HCWs don't speak English as their mother tongue (myself included).
  6. 6.
    This one isn't funny: the result of resource constraints. (Ø is used for surgery.)
  7. 7.
    This intern on casualty service just needed to point out that ordering prostate-specific antigen on a female was unnecessary.
  8. 8.
    This orthopod was just fed-up with their patient constantly wearing his Philadelphia-collar incorrectly.
