Legibility, an Important Issue?

The legibility of doctor’s handwriting has been an established source of humor . According to the Annals of Improbable Research, there have been 4 studies on physician handwriting in the last 30 years (really there have been many more). They even go so far as to recommend a penmanship book from 1843. However, according to Quality & Safety in Health Care, physician’s handwriting is as good (or bad) as anyone else’s.

Happy April Fool’s Day!
