laughter the best medicine

they say that laughter is the best medicine ....have a laugh at these actual doctors notes from hospital charts

rectal exam revealed a normal sized thyroid

the patient is tearful & crying constantly ,she also appears to be depressed

patients medical history has been remarkably insignificant with only a 40 pound weight gain in the past 3 days

the lab test revealed abnormal lover function

patient has 2 teenage children but no other abnormalities

discharge status: alive but without permission

the patient refused an autopsy..............

Re: laughter the best medicine

Were these in your charts? WOW! I like the two children with no other abnormalities. As to the rectal exam revealing a normal thyroid.. OUCH! DANG! That MD had to have one heck of a LONG ARM! I loved it. You made me grin and chuckle.

If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.

Geeee, I didn't know the thyroid gland was down there : )

Yes, i make it a habit to laugh now instead of crying as laughter is supposed to strengthen adrenals too and boy do i need it!

Re: laughter the best medicine

hi everyone we all need a good laugh and if nothing else the doctors provide that .......

doctor to patient:
I already gave you 6 months to live and you have been back twice since then
you know you cant go on like this

doctors notes:

patient was seen in consultation by Dr blank who felt we should sit on abdomen & I agree

while in ER she was examined, xrated and sent home

patient was alert and unresponsive

she is numb from her toes down

she has no rigors or shaking chills but her husband states she was very hot in bed last night

dont they just restore your faith in doctors
