Patient’s Name

Repeating the Patient’s Name!

  • When you have to mention the patient for the first time in a new paragraph, write the patient’s name.
  • When you have to repeat the patient’s name for a second, third, fourth and fifth time, use pronouns.
  • If you have to refer to the patient for more than once in a sentence, use one name and others pronouns.

NB: We do this because there are chances that the recipient forgets the name of the patient!

Get ready!
