"Hey, I'm not sure we've met. I'm the fellow covering a bunch of your patients this month."
"Yeah. What do you need?"
"I'm not sure if you're just writing draft notes and then going back to change them once you've seen the patients, but I've noticed a bunch of them haven't really been matching up to what's going on when I go see them."
"I don't know, they're fine."
"I'm not trying to cause a problem, I just wanted to check and see if I'm just reading them before they're finished, or you're going back and changing them... like Mr. Patient the other day, where it said he refused a procedure, but he'd already had the procedure."
"Maybe I mistyped, I don't know. I'm busy. I can go in and edit that one, I guess. Who's that-- Mr...?"
"With the big family?"
"No, the other guy."
"Oh, okay. You can point him out."
"I just worry that I'm going to make a mistake, if I'm relying on notes that aren't necessarily updated."
"So don't rely on them."
"Yeah, but they're in the system."
"I don't know what you're asking me to do. If you don't like my notes, you're seeing the patients anyway. Don't worry about it."
"If you could just double-check that you're not pressing the wrong button, to save your drafts as finalized notes, that might just make it easier for the team."
"I'll be more engaged, sorry. I've been busy."
"Okay, I just wanted to make sure."
"Yeah, yeah, I'll check them over."
"What is up with the cardiologist?"
"What do you mean?"
"I mean he's actually here, and it's the afternoon. So weird."
