Chinese patients in east China’s Jiangsu Province have been bemused, enraged and baffled by the handwriting of some of their doctors.(News from CCTV)

A patient, surnamed Zhang in Liangyungang, a city of Jiangsu Province, posted his medical history onto the Chinese social media. In the records, the diagnosis looks like a random scrawl to many.

Since this photo was uploaded online, it has provoked a debate on the persistent problem that patients often do not clearly understand their own diagnoses and medical condition. There are also fears that there can be miscommunication between medical professionals if they are relying on each other’s “illegible” notes.

Although some doctors attributed the scribbled handwriting to being rushed as they have to see a large number of patients each day, some netizens have questioned this explanation: If doctors do not even have the time to write clear medical notes, the concern is whether they have enough time to diagnose patient’s conditions correctly.

Once I asked a doctor to read my medical history, the doctor could not understand, either.
