A new nurse was just hired at the hospital. Her and I have the same last name, we also have the same first inital and are both RNs. I didn't think too much about it until the other day when she said, "I don't know how I'm going to sign my name now, since our signatures would be the same." We do have different middle initials, so initialing things wouldn't be a problem. I'm wondering if it will really matter if our names our signed the same, I'm sure our handwriting isn't the same. She is in the OR dept and I don't usually work in patient care, but I do occasionally help out on the floor when things are busy.
I had the same problem once. The person who was hired first was M. Smith, R.N. and the new person was M.A. Smith, R.N.
