Lorie, having been a phlebotomist for many years, you wouldn't believe the handwritten orders for blood tests!!!! And to think lives may have depended upon the results. HaHaHa, how would they like to have their life in our interpretation?? You would not believe the reactions when we had to call to clarify a test....outrageous and these were professionals.

Doctors are some of the worst for penmanship. Our local hosp. went to all computerized order entry. It was required of the docs to enter their orders electronically to avoid mistakes. Staff also does all computerized charting now, too.
