Patients Take Note

Article

Help your patients keep track of any allergies they have to medications.

Keep a pad of sticky notes or regular notepaper in your examination room. If a patient has an adverse reaction to a medication or if a drug is ineffective, simply write down the name of the agent, the date, and the nature of the problem (for example, "nitrofurantoin doesn't work for urinary tract infections") and give this slip to the patient to keep in his or her wallet. Whenever she sees a different clinician, she can show the note rather than try to remember what you told her.
