Doctors Bad Handwriting Cause 7000 Death Every Year

doctor's handwriting causes death

Every year the poor handwriting of doctors is responsible for the deaths of 7000 people each year. As tragic as that sounds, it gets even worse, as that figure is only the tip of the iceberg for the trouble that sloppiness when it comes to penmanship is concerned. It might surprise you to learn that the very same disastrous handwriting results in around 1.5 million people suffering injury annually. And this is only in the United States.

Doctors, despite their wealth of knowledge are not the best when it comes to handwriting. To be brutally honest, in the majority of cases it looks as though their writing was written by a blind person while they were jogging down a road using their weak hand. In other words, it’s terrible, sloppy and just plain bad. So it should come as no surprise to learn that mistakes are made when it comes to deciphering any prescriptions or medical orders.
