Gems from work:-)

Disclaimer: The intention of this post is to spread a few laughs and not at all to make fun of anyone. Please take it in the right spirit.

I used to work as a proofreader with a medical transcription firm earlier. Today I came across my old notebook which I used at work, in which I have noted the various mistakes made by transcriptionists and the correct version. I am posting some of them here.The transcriptionists had typed in something totally different from what the doctor was actually dictating, resulting in a great gaffe. Here goes:

1) Sentence typed: She feels like putting eyes on her thighs. (How do you do that?)
What the doc was dictating:She feels like putting ice on her thighs.

2) Sentence typed: She has food flow in her legs. (Wow!)
What the doc was dictating: She has good flow in her legs.

3) Sentence typed: The doctor is happy with money.
What the doc was dictating: The doctor is happy with my knees.(Thank God the doc didn’t get to read that!)

4) Sentence typed: Dr.X has agreed to treat medicine.(Good to know that science has progressed to the point that even medicine can be treated!)
What the doc was dictating: Dr.X has agreed to treat Madison.

5) Sentence typed: She has got running ears. (Great, at what speed do they run?)
What the doc was dictating: She has got ringing in her ears.

6) Sentence typed: She is a muscled female.
What the doc was dictating: She is a Moslem female.(Poor female!)

7) Sentence typed: She does lift when she is at work and some of these when she was weighed more than 40 lbs., but she lifts some of the coworkers. (Must be one amazing female!)
What the doc was dictating: She does lift windshields at work and some of these weigh more than 40 lbs., but she lifts them a coworker.

8) Sentence typed: He has no blood pressure. (Wow! How is this man alive?)
What the doc was dictating: He has low blood pressure.

9) Sentence typed: The patient was noted with maintaining sleep on the way to the clinic. (One awesome driver he must be!)
What the doc was dictating: The patient was 10 minutes late due to automobile accident on the way to the clinic.

10) Sentence typed: She noticed that the cat had no color.(No comments!)
What the doc was dictating: She noticed that the cat had no collar.

11) Sentence typed: He has likely got a stomach bulb. (Oh really? And does his stomach glow in the dark?)
What the doc was dictating: He has likely got a stomach bug.

12) Sentence typed: She licks urine all the time. (Yuck!)
What the doc was dictating: She leaks urine all the time.

Go ahead, enjoy!!!!!!!!
