HO, MO and Specialist (5)

Specialist is doing a quick round, and HO is documenting down his words in the notes.

Patient #1 - Middle-aged man with uncontrolled hypertension.

Specialist: "The BP is still poorly controlled despite 3 anti-hypertensives. He looks acromegalic, do the hormone workup later."

*HO quickly wrote down*

Patient #2 - Lady with food poisoning, stool culture grows Salmonella.

Specialist: "So this is Salmonella food poisoning, remember to notify the Salmonella."

After round,
Specialist said to MO, "The HO is new right? He seems lost. Just make sure he wrote down the things properly ok."

MO then went back to the bed tickets and see the documentation. He then nearly fainted...

Patient #1's ticket: "Patient looks ?garlic, check the hormone later."

Patient #2's ticket: "Diagnosis is Salmon food poisoning. To notify the Salmon."

MO & Specialist: "Did he really take medical course, or was it a cooking course??"
