Spelling bee

Note in a patients chart today:

"The wife is very spermatic in checking his blood sugars."

Definition: spermatic (adjective)-of, pertaining to, or resembling sperm.

I pointed it out to the author of the note.

She noted it somehow got through spell check.

I noted it was spelled correctly (she laughed).

She obviously meant to say sporadic but had other things on her mind?
