Preamble: many of these issues are small, yet each issue is just that… an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then the larger issues often take care of themselves and you can focus on the larger issues… a larger, more profitable practice and more family time.

“Fracture and Cord Issues Missed by the Emergency Room”

I received this today… Great find Aaron!!! Again… You saved this patient and is one of the core reasons the lawyers and medical specialists in Aaron’s region are never letting him go!!!


The attached MRI was a new MVA case that was seen at the ER and was told he was fine.  
X-rays showed a spinous process fracture at C5, and he had bilateral arm pain with weakness.  I sent him for a STAT MRI and had the radiologist call me STAT.  He also has noted cord and bone edema.
