Brain Surgery? Easy. Prepositions? Impossible!

I had a patient last week with a skull fracture. I was reading through his chart during pre-rounds when I noticed something odd on the Neurosurgery note.  I would've taken a picture, but I'm just a timid med student and don't want to get yelled at [more]:
