That link could create a montrous interpretation problem.

If you want to see how Harrell does it, you can work through the code
that you get from:
The last element in the "stats" list is (1 - pchisq(z^2, 1), 4) )
where z was defined as
z <- cof/sqrt(vv)
... and those were obtained further up as:
vv <- diag(x$var)
cof <- x$coef
So you could try seeing if this is satisfying:
vv <- diag(fit$var) ;
cof <- fit$coef ;
z <- cof/sqrt(vv) ;
1 - pchisq(z^2, 1)
