    Yes-- this is quite typical. Particularly with the kind of medical documentation software used vs "hand writing records" as we did in the "old" days (lol!). Records are typically set up as templates. If you print a hard copy, all of the templated areas (even if unpopulated) may print out.

    And some providers document LOTS and LOTS all the time....others are more "lean and mean" in their documentation. With the advent of dictation systems, there is more incentive to document more, rather than less, as the provider simply talks into the telephone device. I'd have to see the pages themselves in their entirety to see what kind of system may have been used, and to comment further about the depth and quality of the documentation from the provider. Do we know who he saw? Did he see the D.O., or one of his PA's?

    Is the record available for review anywhere yet, or just the screen caps?

    Where is the "probable" nose fracture even coming from? From the part of the records shown by abc, I didn't see any "probable, possible or likely" next to words "closed fracture."
    Just my opinion

    Interesting, eh?

    How broken do you suppose his nose really was? _

    Do we know if Z had insurance? Also, I know when my nose was broken the docs told me it was obvious it was broken and there really wasn't any reason to do an X-ray as there wasn't anything they could do and that it would heal on it's own.

    And I want it ALL. Not just selected bits and pieces. I for one am not convinced this dr.'s report is completely favorable to GZ. I want to see everything and make my own mind up.

    From a screen cap in the thread about George's medical records. I just went and looked and it says "likely" in the discussion section. I don't know what it says in the dx section, though.

    AMEN!!! This is exactly what I have thought since last night! MOM withholds the documents but leaked is:

    1.) GZ medical report listing injuries.
    2.) Autopsy says Trayvon showed signs of injury to knuckles.

    With all of the States evidence against GZ turned over to MOM... this is all they chose to leak to media?

    What info wasn't leaked was the bullet trajectory info...Hmmm!

    Looks like the DE-fense has entered the SPIN ZONE! I hope we can read the documents soon...

    IMO, yes, especially when an injury is involved. I've always figured it was CYA, in case I don't do what they tell me to do and my condition worsens.

    From dictionary.com:
    hospitalization, noun
    the act, process, or state of being hospitalized.

    Also from dictionary.com:
    hospitalized: verb
    to place in a hospital for medical care or observation: The doctor hospitalized grandfather as soon as she checked his heart.

    Being checked out in an ER and being *hospitalized* are not the same things...
    The EMS report will document that the patient "declined transport". There is no indication from what we have with the FP visit that he was considered for admission to the hospital at that point. And I can't imagine why he would have been with relatively minor injuries that can be managed as an outpatient.

    I'm in agreement with those who have opined that it may have been GZs workplace who directed him to be seen and cleared before returning to work. It's entirely possible GZ himself did not independently seek the appointment because of his injuries.

    But aside from that, it is what it is. He clearly had some injuries that were documented and examined by a licensed provider. And it was perfectly OK for him to see a PA in this instance. Both of the PA's listed have impeccable educational credentials-- far exceeding the minimum necessary for a PA. I really am concerned with all of the chatter that the PA (if that is who he saw) is going to be bashed because she is not a physician. I can see it coming, sadly.
    I hope I'm wrong.

    It's supposed to be released in the proper manner according to the Florida Sunshine laws, which O'Mara is attempting to challenge, IMO. Not surreptitiously leaked to support Zimmerman's cause.

    Oh I think they do when a patient comes in with an injured arm or leg. In fact, an Orthopod would likely xray everyone who came to him. It would certainly alter the course of treatment. My doctor routinely orders a CBC every three months. My point is that George Zimmerman was complaining that he "Thought" his nose was broken. Probably he was saying that it hurt. If I tell my doctor that I have a persistant abdominal pain, most likely he would order tests which would include xrays. The point is, I was not suggesting that a doctor routinely xray everyone's nose. That would be silly on my part. I was suggesting that it might have been appropriate in this case to xray the nose of a person complaining of pain in that area after some kind of physical altercation, although it might not show a break or cartilage injury but on the other hand, it might. And too, there might be the danger of a facial fracture of some sort if TM had beaten him so badly that he was in fear of death.
    The fact remains that no diagnosis of a broken nose was made.

    Per abc, Zimmerman was diagnosed with a closed fracture of the nose. So I find it quite bizarre when posters start claiming that no diagnosis was made.
    Just my opinion

    MOM and George both have the report and there is nothing stopping them from giving it to anyone.

    The State has it but it is evidence for them so they can not legally leak it and would have no reason to. imo

    It will be interesting to find out if George ever gave this legal clearance to his work. imo

    This was discussed in another thread, or maybe upthread in this one (?). Suzihawk posted a quote from Oliver saying that is exactly what happened. He went to work, told them what happened and they said he needed to see a dr. before coming back. The employer would need a medical clearance to show that his injuries were not work related for work.comp. purposes. Employers do that all the time for risk managment purposes.

    Or just perhaps the training that they received in medical school allowed them to determine a nose is broken without any x-ray?

    Personally I have never heard of getting an x-ray for a broken nose.

    All I know is the DR said "likely broken". You can read it on this screen cap:

    And if it comes to trial, I am sure the doctors could get on the stand and say how he made this diagnosis.
    X-rays aren't needed for every diagnosis.

    My ophthamologist did this too. And at the beginning of his narrative he noted that it was to be sent to my internist and neurologist so I'm pretty sure it was eventually transcribed.
