MEDICAL BLOOPERS ON MEDICAL CHARTS!
We've all seen sports bloopers and TV bloopers -- well, how about
Since the Medical Bloopers page was started we have collected all of
the unintentionally funny things that doctors have written in medical
files. Everything you will read, including bad spelling and grammar, has
been lifted directly off of these reports. Keep checking here as more
bloopers are submitted. All of the names have been omitted to protect
the innocent and not-so-innocent!
These bloopers are visitor submitted bloopers. Finally if there are any of you out there who wish to submit your
them to us. We'll post them on this page.
