Charlene Arseneault- Please keep in mind not everyone knows abbreviations. MVA is common for "Motor Vehicle Accident" and I can only assume GOA is "Gone on Arrival". I also did not think it was appropriate at all for you to mention that the poor confused man had "Wet Brain", I think saying he was confused was more than enough, in fact I would even think it was a violation of his patient rights to print what he was hospitalized for.
