Funny Post by Dr. Rob

I love this hilariously, clever post written by Dr Rob over at his
"Musings of a Distractible Mind" blog! The following is a brief excerpt from Dr Rob's post .."Coding a Morning":

"PLACE OF OCCURRENCE, HOME ICD-E849.0

Alarm goes off. Hit snooze button. CIRCADIAN RHYTHM SLEEP D/O IRREG SLEEPWAKE TYPE ICD-327.33

  • Alarm goes off for third time. Ready to hit snooze button, but knee in ribs from wife prevents more snooze button procrastination. CONTUSION OF CHEST WALL ICD-922.1, ADULT MALTREATMENT UNSPECIFIED NEC ICD-995.8
