Ride That Wave, Lean Into That Stereotype

, , , , , , | Healthy | September 8, 2022

I’m a newly qualified nurse in a stroke ward. I’m doing a medication round and find a new listing on a patient Kardex (list of meds, when to give them, etc.) that I cannot read. It looks like someone has tried to draw a wave. I go hunt down a doctor to get it interpreted.

Doctor: “How am I supposed to know? It’s just a squiggle! You nurses should be able to read it! Or find the moron who wrote it and ask them!”

Me: “You wrote it. That’s your signature.”

The doctor is silent for a moment.

Doctor: “…what patient was it again?”
