French term or phrase: EV = 10 jours
In a patient's medical record, after stating the reasons the patient has come to the hospital (due to being beaten in prison), it states simply "EV = 10 jours" Is this perhaps to schedule a follow-up appointment in 10 days?

In town = 10 days


Explanation:
EV is the abbreviation for en ville which means in town/city. It may mean that the patient was in town for 10 days, after which he came to the hospital.
