This is an actual conversation I had with a patient during my primary care clinic as an intern:
Me: "So do you have any medical problems?"
Patient: "No, nothing."
Me: "Nothing at all?"
Me: (flipping through the chart) "Wait, do you have AIDS??"
Patient: "Oh. Yes."
That was sort of a weird situation.... I have never seen a chart of a HIV+ patient that was so completely stripped of any information on her disease. It's almost as if her denial transmitted itself to her chart.
