I just read a discharge summary that was so wrong that it got me angry. Among the grievances I had with it:
--alternated between calling a bleed in the brain a subdural hematoma and subarachnoid hemorrhage
--did not say what side any of the patients fractures were on
--at one point, it just said the patient had a compression fracture, but didn't ever say where
--wrote that patient got fresh frozen plasma in the middle of her hospital course but did not say why
--said that the patient needed a lumbar brace at all times when the patient did not need it at all
--got the patient's weight-bearing status wrong, and failed to even say what side they were talking about
I don't expect for everyone to document everything like a medical student would, but at least put in a seed of information that I can use to treat the patient. There ought to be a place where you can report somebody writing such a terrible discharge summary.
