Too many errors?

I was recently reading a discharge summary on a patient, trying to figure out what the imaging showed, and this is what it read:

"The right hip showed unspecified mild assist in nephritis and mild effusion. There was mention of lumbar spondylosis.  Imaging otherwise of the lumbar of the lumbar spine otherwise appears rather underwhelming for parasite."


I know nobody corrects their errors on these notes, but I genuinely think there is some level of mistakes that is truly detrimental to patient care.
