Saddest Reports So Far

Yesterday and today I had the saddest reports I’ve done so far.   The patient was a young woman, 4 months pregnant, with premature rupture of membranes.   Last night I transcribed her admission H&P, her husband was with her, the baby was still alive, but the prognosis was grim.

Today, I got her delivery note…the baby had died and she was induced.

Sometimes you just can’t help but get a little emotionally involved…even as the transcriptionist.  =(

    Good to see this blog.
    Yes, sometimes as transcriptionists, stories are being told and we may get affected.
