Weekly Whine: OSH

There is nothing more annoying than when the discharge summary says that a patient came from an "outside hospital". It just seems pointlessly lazy.

I mean, how hard is it to just put in the name of the hospital in case we need more information? Is it really that difficult?

  1. I always thought it was to not place any "blame" to the outside hospital if the patient came in as a train wreck. I actually intentionally write OSH rather than name the hospital. It will be in transfer records (which are scanned into EHR). I do list referring MD and contact info if needed (again, without naming hospital)
