Some of these chief complaints are redundant, or may overlap. For instance, "Bleed - brain" and "Subdural hematoma" may mean the same thing; or they may not. Rather than second-guess why it is the doc described just-so, I enter them as they come across from Dispatch.

I try to be able to communicate with my patients, at least to the extent of asking about allergies, medications, PMH, and all that jazz. If a patient speaks any English, they are not counted here. If a family member who speaks English is available at bedside or accompanies the patient, they are not listed here. These are therefore the patients whose sole means of communication is via their language only.
