    Why Do Doctors Have Bad Handwriting?

    Bad Handwriting

    Many doctors have long been known to have unreadable handwriting that is difficult to decipher. Most of the time, only someone in the medical profession is able to understand doctors’ written remarks or prescriptions, which has long perplexed many people.

    Doctors’ handwritings, according to data, account for a portion of hospital mortality. It is estimated that over 30,000 individuals die each year as a result of doctors’ handwriting. Given the number of deaths caused by suicidal ideation, doctors are unlikely to purposefully hide their writings.

    It should be mentioned, however, that not all doctors have such awful handwriting; there are some with exquisite handwriting that you’d want to look at all day.

    Well, the medical industry is now going electronic in order to combat the issue of lousy handwriting, reduce casualties from such errors, and handle the vast number of hospital databases. Some hospitals now electronically deliver prescriptions from the doctor’s desk to pharmacists, making things easier and faster.

    Despite all of this, and because no profession is without its own “errors,” we can’t help but conclude that the medical profession has been a blessing to humanity.

      That is true. All the doctor I know have terrible handwriting. No wonder people died more often as stated by the writer because the nurses may not understand the handwriting of the doctor when a prescription of drugs is written.

      Does it mean that doctors were not taught handwriting in their primary school? I have seen a lot of things written by doctors that beat my imagination. Funnily enough, a good number of them have very bad handwriting.
