Okay, if you're going to have an RN, FNP, or PA dictate for you, at least make sure they know the terminology!
I just suffered through at 10 minute discharge summary on a patient post CVA, and this lady was reading the CT scan and MRI reports of the brain into the record with clearly no idea at all of what she was reading or what it meant or how to pronounce the parts of the brain. Thank goodness I've been around long enough to be able to get and idea and fill in some of these, but still wound up with a few blanks because I just could not begin to guess what she was trying to say - and she was obviously READING it! Too bad I didn't have access to the Radiology report.
This happens so often. Of course, some of the little things bother me too, like when they say adenoPATHY, etc.
My stepdaughter is a nursing student, and I'm trying to educate her in the proper pronunciation of medical terminology. You'd think that they'd teach that!
