On the Doctor's Handwriting

People have been saying that, one of the things that we learn from medical school, would be how to write like a doctor. No, not to mean the way we construct our sentences or what vocabularies we use, but how we write, literally, as in, handwriting.

Last few weeks while I was still in Primary Care Medicine posting, we went to the stress ECG clinic to hang out, and I came across some interesting handwriting.

Another colleague and I were deciphering what he wrote for almost half an hour before we finally found out what he wrote, that only after we asked the particular patient.

Made out what it really was?

i pity the nurses who sometimes had to read handwriting like that. but then again, i reckon they're already used to it..hahaha...

anyway, what the heck did he wrote?? patient's gender??

I really wanna to give the nurses an award of decoding the doctor's writing and grant doctors awards for encoding the information... :p

Dude, hopefully your writing will not be like that in the future ... :p Hmmm... i just couldn't know what is the doctor writing about ... let's ask the artist or the special agent from Russia :p

Don't we all have the same thought of this? Maybe doctor's handwriting isn't meant for us to read. But, can the nurse/pharmacist actually read it?
