Why Do Doctors Often Have Bad Handwriting? This Doctor Has An Answer

Published on 26 November, 2016 at 7:11 pm By

Illegible handwriting of doctors is a big issue for both the patients as well as pharmacists as it carries the risk of misinterpretation.

Recent guidelines from the Medical Council of India (MCI) mandate that doctors must write prescriptions legibly and in capital letters. They must also furnish a complete and detailed prescription to ensure that there is no chance of incorrect treatment. Although a good move, it is hardly being adhered to by practitioners.

However, you may have noticed that the bad handwriting issue is practically universal.

A doctor explained the reason for this on Quora:

I got first prize in handwriting competition in school. But, now. Holy lord. During exam, one can call the first page of my sheet as etched by a craftman. A damn perfect cursive writing. Beautifully written words. Later, even I can’t read my own stuff.

We have to complete long answers in minimum time. Anxiety kills us. We are not given any choices in exams. We have to write everything.

Trust me, it is not what it seems to be in a non medico exam. So, we develop poor handwriting. Damn our exams.

-Aarushi Sharma

And these jokes on Twitter say the same:
