GI Medical Transcription Discharge Summary Sample Report #3



1. Intractable nausea.
2. Vomiting.
3. Epigastric pain.

1. Intractable nausea.
2. Vomiting.
3. Epigastric pain.
4. Pancreatitis, resolved.
5. Hiatal hernia.

HOSPITAL COURSE: On admission, the patient was seen in GI consult. Their impression was that this is a patient with abdominal discomfort, nausea, vomiting, and episodes of loose bowel movements. X-rays performed were not consistent with obstruction. Possible gastroenteritis, which may explain the mild elevation of lipase versus a resolving pancreatitis to rule out gastric pathology.

At that stage, the patient seemed to be improving and noted he would begin clear liquids and progress as tolerated and obtain repeat abdominal x-rays the following morning and begin on Reglan IV piggyback, and depending on the patient’s clinical status, further workup could be determined as necessary. On MM/DD/YYYY, the patient was noted to be confused and disoriented the night previous. Much better that morning on rounds. Abdominal pain was much better. She was tolerating liquids. Her abdomen was soft and nontender. Her lipase was elevated, and she was assessed that day with pancreatitis, resolving. On MM/DD/YYYY, she had more confusion the night previous, still somewhat confused on MM/DD/YYYY. Her husband stated that this had been a problem at home. Tender upper abdomen assessed that day with pancreatitis, atrophy, congestive heart failure, compensated, and sundowning. She had an EGD done on MM/DD/YYYY showing a hiatal hernia. On MM/DD/YYYY, all of her symptoms were resolved at that time, and she was considered stable for discharge. The patient was discharged to be followed up in two weeks.

DISCHARGE MEDICATIONS: Discharged home on diltiazem CD 240 mg one daily, Reglan 10 mg half tablet q.i.d., lisinopril 20 mg one daily, Lasix 20 mg, and warfarin 5 mg half tablet q.a.m.

GI Medical Transcription Discharge Summary Sample Report #4

HISTORY OF PRESENT ILLNESS: This is a (XX)-year-old female with a past medical history of hypertension, anemia, and goiter who presented with one-day history of sharp right upper quadrant and epigastric pain and dyspnea.

PAST MEDICAL HISTORY: Hypertension, anemia, goiter, and small bowel obstruction.

ALLERGIES: No known allergies.

HOSPITAL COURSE: In view of her advanced age and past medical history, the patient was admitted to telemetry for rule out MI. Chest x-ray showed increased perihilar markings without infiltrate. Obstructive series was done, which did not show any air fluid levels. Ultrasound showed gallstones with no evidence of cholecystitis. CT of the chest was done, which showed bilateral pleural effusions and atelectasis without evidence of pulmonary embolism. Cardiac enzymes x3 were obtained. The patient ruled out for acute MI. She was started on aspirin, beta-blocker, and nitroglycerin. Echocardiogram was done, and cardiology was consulted.

Gallstones were found on abdominal ultrasound, which were asymptotic. Echocardiogram showed moderately reduced left ventricular function and some evidence of diastolic dysfunction. The patient also had moderate to severe aortic valve sclerosis. She was placed on IV Lasix and ACE inhibitor and symptomatically improved with the above treatment. GI was consulted for anemia evaluation, and this workup will be continued as an outpatient. She was discharged to home to go and live with her niece and will follow up as an outpatient.

DISCHARGE MEDICATIONS: Lasix 40 mg daily, K-Dur 20 mEq daily, enalapril 5 mg daily, Lopressor 50 mg twice daily, and Imdur 30 mg daily.
