When I was working for a hospital I had to review samples of nurse's notes in charts (minus any patient information.) I noticed that these nurses used a system of letters and symbols to represent words. The only one that I remember, and still use, is the letter that signified "with". It was a "c" with a dash over the top. I believe that "without" was an "s" or a "p" with a dash across he top, but don't quote me on that. I also seem to remember a triangle (delta) signifying "change"

Does anyone know where I can find a list of these letters and symbols?
