Pharmacists see hand written orders like the one below almost daily. The order has to be interpreted by a pharmacist, usually with a little hand waving and guessing (kind of like being a pharmacy Jedi), and entered on the patientâ€™s medication profile before the nurse can access the medication from the automated dispensing cabinet and get it to the patient. Even though Iâ€™m used to looking at orders like this, there is simply no excuse for what you see below.
There are two medications contained in the hand written orders below. I double-dog dare you to find them. Itâ€™s kind of like a â€œWhereâ€™s Waldoâ€ puzzle. Leave your guesses in the comment section of this post. Good luck.
