I'm not sure if anyone is familiar with the dictation program Dragon. It dictates everything you say in real time, which is good because you can correct errors as you go, but bad because the only one reading your notes to make sure they're correct is yourself.
Now I always read over my notes. But I'm a human being and mistakes can be missed. One of the more annoying mistakes that Dragon makes with horrifying frequency is:
Patient --> Asian
So instead of my note saying, "Patient is feeling well," the note says, "Asian is feeling well." Which is a mistake that I really don't appreciate. Especially if the patient is Asian.
It also sometimes dictates "patient" as "Haitian."
