A progress note is a document in the medical record that is copied and pasted over and over again so that all progress notes look exactly the same, which is worth it even if the case goes to court because doing so saved valuable time. Two exceptions are the Ortho progress note, which is often blank to 3 words long, and the Ophtho progress note, which has been until now indecipherable until the discovery of a missing Rosetta Stone fragment.
