Yesturday a physician came to our recovery area to see a post-op pt. He wrote orders and I glanced at them as I always do before he left (so I wouldn't have to page him in 3 minutes for clarification of handwriting). I was AMAZED. The writing was not only readable but worthy of a penmanship award! I told him "Thank you for writing so neatly". Know what he said? He said, "I don't see why M.D's write sloppy, it just wastes everyones time when we have to be called when noone can read the writing". He is my new hero (as far as doc's go). What a breath of fresh air for a change. To top it off, he is actually a sweet guy and a great doctor.
Just had to share some good news for a change.
