There are a couple of docs and surgeons on my floor who really need to be sat down and talked to about their pathetic handwriting.
Many of the docs do fine - I'm actually more irritated by their lack of "signing" off on their orders than the sloppy handwriting.
And there are some surgeons who are very meticulous and neat.
Of the nurses on my floor, there is only one other nurse whose handwriting I can read 110% every time - and it happens to be a guy (combat veteran. Served in Gulf I and II). Most of the nurses do fine - there is one senior nurse whose handwriting I can't read at all and makes it difficult during chart check time.
The only thing "confusing" about my handwriting is not that it is illegible, but I write in cursive form. Many of the nurses on the floor are not used to it - but they aren't used to male nurses on the floor either

Also boys have worse handwriting skills than girls.
There's a generalisation if I ever saw one.
What's next? "Girls are smarter than boys" ?
