Me: Uh, don't take this the wrong way, but can I make a suggestion?
Me: I think you should delete the note you wrote on Mr. Johnson in room 123 today.
Me: Well, you wrote 'no acute overnight events. Tolerating PO. Pain controlled. Pt is improving. Plan: OK to D/C to home tomorrow'
Me: Uh, yesterday he developed projectile vomiting, I ordered a CT scan that showed he had a massive bowel obstruction, I consulted general surgery and they took him to the OR and did an exploratory laparotomy with bowel resection, he went into atrial fibrillation postoperatively and the Rapid Response Team was called, he was then started on coumadin. We've had 2 nasogastric tubes in him and he keeps on pulling them out. And I ordered a urinalysis yesterday and it was positive so he was started on Levaquin.
(Although it was the last day of his intern year so I was willing to give him a pass for that one, but starting tomorrow...)
