These are sentences actually typed by medical secretaries in the NHS Greater Glasgow,
but I'm sure their bosses would be happy to take the blame!
Perhaps the secretary was typing from the Dr's handwritten notes!

2 Patient has left her white blood cells at another hospital.

3 Patient's medical history has been remarkably insignificant with only a 40 pound weight gain in the past three days.

4 She has no rigors or shaking chills, but her husband states she was very hot in bed last night.

5 Patient has chest pain if she lies on her left side for over a year.

6 On the second day the knee was better and on the third day it disappeared.

7 The patient is tearful and crying constantly. She also appears to be depressed.

30 She slipped on the ice and apparently her legs went in separate directions in early December.

31 Patient was seen in consultation by Dr. Smith, who felt we should sit on the abdomen and I agree.
