Nursing Note of the Week

Here is a nurses triage note I came across lately:

"Pt here seeking treatment for new "spots" on his legs, thinks it may be ringworms. Reports he was released from jail last week and has been staying in a crack house x 4 days. Also reports "bugs" in his groin area and axillary area and reports when he smokes crack that the bugs in his groin area form a V. Unable to inspect this "V" or groin area at this time."

Pretty funny stuff.
