Recently we had a patient admitted after a multi-trauma. Among the patient's many diagnoses was the diagnosis "right lamina propria fracture".
If you know what the lamina propria is, you'd realize this makes absolutely no sense.
I looked through all the documentation in the patient's chart and every single thing said "right lamina propria fracture".
Finally, I called the resident who dictated the discharge and I asked her what she meant by that. She recognized that this was not an actual thing that could be fractured, but she still seemed kind of angry that I was questioning her. She said, "I didn't take care of the patient most of time she was in the hospital. I was just copying somebody else's notes."
Well, I guess if you just copied and pasted something that was completely wrong without questioning it, you're not at fault at all.
I finally tracked down the nurse practitioner that was taking care the patient who told me what it really was. Any guesses?
