Department of Redundancy Department

This isn't a blooper, but I'm going to post it anyway. 

Dictated: "... this has shown progressive progress."

Awesome! This patient gets to have advanced, forward-thinking progress, while others just get plain old progress, or the dreaded retrograde progress. You can tell this guy sprinkles his reports with "at this point in time," too. 

... And my hospital has decided to require us to "transcribe as dictated," which means I can't fix any of this stuff. Which makes me sad.
