The Daily Docblock: Self-Block Edition

Sometimes docblocks come from the most unexpected of places. . . ourselves! Recently I’ve had a slew of patients see me in follow-up after me or my partners saw them while in the hospital. . . sometimes months later. Problem is, there is not always a dictation summary available, meaning I’ve gotta spend lots of extra time digging through test results (over a painfully slow remote access system) until I can finally suss out the reason for the follow up.  Eventually we get it all figured out, but those extra minutes are surely frustating.
