EMR. EHR: the wonderful world of electronic records likely have you labeled like that of the rest of your life . you have to get them to uncheck the box that spits out the laundry list of diagnoses on every record you have that means nothing except for some pea counters. maybe refuse to pay or tell them you need a cross bow permit since you have arthritis or you need a handicap placard and then they'll fix

Fever, dehydration: If your child has a high fever or blood in the stool or if he is vomiting enough or having enough diarrhea that he has a dry mouth, no tears and is very listless, he needs medical attention. If he is less than 2 months old, you need to at least talk to a doctor and might need to have him seen.
