So I'm handicapped: I've been left handed all my life. Somehow, I've managed to overcome it and live a moderately productive life, up till now.
Our clinical site likes having us mask cases, so I've been masking all the knee scopes, etc (I masked 5 of them one day a couple weeks ago).
The trick is, they're starting to have me chart while doing the masking.
Thats fine, except by the time I have the patient spontaneous, my hand is shaking and I can barely write - thats if they're able to hold their airway when I let go.
The solution I have right now is to learn how to write with my right hand (it's something i've always wanted to do anyways). literally. i've been studying for our next test by writing all my notes with my right.
there has to be an easier way though, in the meantime while my penmanship improves. any suggestions?
