A female patient, 8 weeks pregnant was admitted in our ward.
Doctors in our hospital (I don’t know if all the doctors in UAE per se) don’t write history of present illness. Even the diagnoses aren’t even diagnoses. Under the diagnosis, they just write the symptoms. So we received the patient wondering what happened and why was she admitted. We read what the doctor wrote in the file.
Loss of memory since yesterday.
British Nursing Supervisor: Hmmm, I got that all the time. I do hope she knows who got her pregnant!
Diagnosis: Epilepsy, for observation of pregnancy.
British Nursing Supervisor: So were just going to have her for 7 months until she gives birth…
I just love how she sarcastically give comments like that. She kind of reminds me of Sue Sylvester. 😉
