It appears you are missing the point

In my work at Ghetto Outer Borough Hospital (heretofore named GOB Hospital), I look at a lot of patient charts.

In the basic info section, there’s a label called “Appearance.” Usually providers will write something like:

APPEARANCE: pleasant, alert, oriented.

APPEARANCE: obese

etc. etc.

Yesterday, I stumbled across a resident who had written:

APPEARANCE: Pt wearing sunglasses, multiple necklaces, multiple rings, and bracelets.

 

Good to know, Dr. Vogue.
