Why are some doctors's handwriting are near impossible to read... That's one problem we nurses have to face during "rounds"?

Impatience, the need for speed, ego-jackassery

No, seriously - they're so bad pharmacists have been fighting/lobbying for and finally getting many doctors to switch to electronic scrips. In one of the few things insurance companies get right - they often now demand electronic scrips to reduce errors.

I have a question.

Is there any other ways to wake yourself up, other than the standard way of setting alarm with your mobile?

I means i never was a morning person, but it get worse this year. I actually wake up, turn off the alarm and go back to sleep without realising it. The only reason that i remembered that i turned it off (rather than something wrong with my phone), was because i vividly remembered how my brain was going through "what the heck is that lousy square thing, tap into the corner to shut it up" before getting back to sleep each time. I always set 4 alarms with intervals of 5-15 mins, but always turned all 4 of them off every morning

I tried to place it further from my reach, but didn't work too well. Should i hide my phone somewhere that i simply can't find if i'm not awake?

Ha, I assume you don't mean by buying some sort of expensive alarm-clock-watch/wristband? If it's as bad as you know, there's wake-up call services that are offered where people will call you to wake you up and won't stop till you get up.. Or maybe you could just drink a ridiculous amount of water before you go to bed so you'll have to get up!

Or just buy more than one alarm clock, and place them at strategic locations throughout the room, so that you have to get up to switch them all off, and by the time you've done that, the incentive to get back into bed may (hopefully) be gone.

Well, i probably will prefer to not spending any money, but that actually a pretty smart suggestion. Can't do it everyday, but probably can borrow all my family cell phones and do that before important occasion.

Ideally will be having a box(which is not sound-proof), and you have to solve a simple puzzle to open it, i guess.

I've found actually just changing the location with a singe one can work quite effectively rather than a need for multiple.

I've always thought that it was to make it impossible to forge a prescription.

In college, I actually had 3 alarm clocks. Each one was set farther away from the bed in a line to the door and triggered to go off at 10 minutes later than the last. One day my dorm mate found me curled up at the door with the last one.

Your mileage may vary.

These days I keep 3 alarms set in my cellphone at 10 minutes apart - the ringtones start with "new age" and move to "metal".

I always thought your wife is your 4th alarm clock. With the ringtone "死". (pun unintended)

How about letting lot of lights get into your room? For me this seems to work to some degrees. After moving I got a room that got lot of light in the morning so I would rather wake up early, then I went back to school and had hard time waking up as the room was dark.

Heh, actually I wake her up (which is a switch from our early years). She has to get up at 4:30am.

Hook up a old cellphone to some loud speakers via 3.5mm jacks in the bathroom and set the alarm to desired time. It never failed me yet. Plus you can listen to music/radio when you're in there doing whatever. xD

I have just tried to put my cell phones somewhere high (so have to fully stand up to reach it). Actually worked slightly better now.

If i have to guess, your wife is store manager for a restaurant? Got a friend working in one a while back, and that is her holy time every morning.

Can't do so, my room is not sound-proof, gonna wake the whole house up like that X(


New question:

Use end dot in the end of a all paragraphs (especially the final paragraph of a section), and of all bullet points, Yes or No? Is it important for formal report?

This might sound crazy. You could used an adaptor so you could attach your phone to an amplifier then to a speaker.... then presto... even your neighbors will try to wake you up to turn off the speaker when it alarms..

It's impossible. It's already the law of universe for everything (that concerns you) to happen 5 minutes before your expected sleeping time. You simply can't escape it.....

At least you're aware that you need to wake up earlier before "doomsday clock" alarms...
