Hi Alto, thanks for writing,
I don't HAVE to know what each initial = word but I figured it would just be easier to remember if I did. Like h.s. = before bedtime. How in the world did they come up with that? I think it would be easier if it was "B.B" = before bedtime
Like q.o.d. OK, I can see where the "o" and "d" = "other day" but where did "q" come from? Shouldn't it be "e" for "every"?
Maybe it's derived from Latin or something. I don't know. I just figured if I could associate each initial with a word it would be easier to remember and understand.
Don't even get me started on drams and grains :roll
I think I may be developing my own unique brand of nursing here.:imbar
