    The following statements were found on patients' charts during a recent review of medical records and were written by various health care professionals including (we're afraid) a doctor or two at several major hospitals:

    The lab test indicated abnormal lover function.

    The baby was delivered, the cord clamped and cut, and handed to the pediatrician, who breathed and cried immediately.

    Exam of genitalia reveals that he is circus sized.

    The skin was moist and dry.

    The patient had waffles for breakfast and anorexia for lunch.

    The patient was in his usual state of good health until his airplane ran out of gas and crashed.

    I saw your patient today, who is still under our car for physical therapy.

    The patient lives at home with his mother, father, and pet turtle, who is presently enrolled in day care three times a week.

    Bleeding started in the rectal area and continued all the way to Los Angeles.

    Both breasts are equal and reactive to light and accommodation.

    She is numb from her toes down.

    Exam of genitalia was completely negative except for the right foot.

    While in the emergency room, she was examined, X-rated and sent home.

    The patient was to have a bowel resection. However, he took a job as stockbroker instead.

    Coming from Detroit, this man has no children.

    When she fainted, her eyes rolled around the room.

    Examination reveals a well-developed male lying in bed with his family in no distress.

    By the time he was admitted, his rapid heart had stopped, and he was feeling better.

    Patient has chest pain if she lies on her left side for over a year.

    The patient states there is a burning pain in his p*n*s which goes to his feet.

    On the second day the knee was better and on the third day it had completely disappeared.

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

    The patient has been depressed ever since she began seeing me in 1983.

    I will be happy to go into her GI system; she seems ready and anxious.

    Patient was released to outpatient department without dressing. I have suggested that he loosen his pants before standing, and then, when he stands with the help of his wife, they should fall to the floor.

    The patient is tearful and crying constantly. She also appears to be depressed.

    Discharge status: Alive but without permission. The patient will need disposition, and therefore we will get Dr Blank to dispose of him.

    The patient refused an autopsy.

    The patient has no past history of suicides.

    The patient expired on the floor uneventfully.

    Patient has left his white blood cells at another hospital.

    Patient was becoming more demented with urinary frequency.

    The patient's past medical history has been remarkably insignificant with only a 40 pound weight gain in the past three days.

    She slipped on the ice and apparently her legs went in separate directions in early December.

    The patient experienced sudden onset of severe shortness of breath with a picture of acute pulmonary edema at home while having sex which gradually deteriorated in the emergency room.

    The patient left the hospital feeling much better except for her original complaints.

    Between you and me, we ought to be able to get this lady pregnant.

    Since she can't get pregnant with her husband, I thought you might like to work her up.

    Occasional, constant, infrequent headaches.

    Patient was alert and unresponsive.

    Rectal exam revealed a normal size thyroid.

    Skin: Somewhat pale but present.

    The pelvic examination will be done later on the floor.

    Patient was seen in consultation by Dr. Blank, who felt we should sit on the abdomen and I agree.

    Large brown stool ambulating in the hall.

    Patient has two teenage children, but no other abnormalities.
