- Medical Record Abbreviations Quiz: Person, Place or Thing?
Welcome to the March 2015 edition of MLCS e-news. We have been busy with medical record reviews for all types of injury cases this winter. Thank you for entrusting us with your cases, as we have been digging through avalanches of medical records to help you get to the nature and extent of injuries.
In the spirit of the spring season, we are excited about the new growth on the horizon for MLCS. We invite you to check out our upgraded website, which includes a downloadable referral form in PDF or Word format. Over the spring and summer, we will upgrade our secure “drop box” for large electronic medical record files to a user-friendly format.
In April, it’s spring training time! We’re thrilled to welcome new staff members with current clinical experience to our team of nurse consultants. To accommodate our growth, we’re expanding our office space, and will keep you updated regarding any change in suite address.
May you enjoy the new growth of spring in your world, as well!

Medical Record Abbreviations Quiz: Person, Place or Thing?
As with many things in medical records, the abbreviations used can be daunting. They do not always refer to a symptom, exam finding, or a medical condition, but may also refer to persons, places or things.
How about these? Let us know if you get a perfect score and we will make the quiz more challenging next time!
