  1. “She got my instructions messed up and cut out all exercise and increased her sweets.”
  2. “Following the exam of her breasts we discussed the impending nasal surgery.”
  3. Since she can’t get pregnant with her husband, I thought you might like to work her up.
  4. The dermatologist made a recommendation for treatment of her face which is not of a serious nature.
  5. He was eating his tray so I didn’t examine him.
  6. I will be happy to go into her GI system, she seems ready and anxious.
  7. The patient’s bladder was then emptied and sent to the postoperative recovery room in stable condition.
  8. The bugs that grew out of her urine were cultured in the Casualty and are not available. I WILL FIND THEM!!!
  9. May have lollipops orally.
  10. Discontinue precious insulin orders.
