This was a hashtag on twitter the other day.
Darshana Thaker: write directions that actually make sense! And no Suppositories cannot be written as “take Two TDS”!
Paula Bishenden: Hospital Drs, please write the patients address, it does say name & address & include a quantity to dispense
Me: BNF comes out twice a year. There is no reason to keep using one from 2005
@danthedealer: if you issue a Rx with “as directed” on it, please give the patient an idea what that direction is.
@clareylang: don’t squeeze too many drugs on one script, you can use two
@danascu: If I can remember how a CD Rx needs to be written, perhaps you can too
@clareylang: check what strengths/forms cd meds come in before prescribing
Me: Every once in a while, read the prescription before signing
@pillmanuk: just because the Hosp consultant said prescribe that red traffic lighted drug, you don’t have to obey
Me: Sign in the box
@lifeonthepharm: Invest in a diary which shows bank holidays for writing those tricky installment scripts
@clareylang: make sure it is available in the country you’re in before you prescribe it
Me: There is a magical book called the BNF. Open it and use it
