Medical Symbols 

I don't recommend that legal nurse consultants use a lot of medical symbols in reports because the use of symbols can slow down non-medical readers or be confusing. But sometimes I get a request to type certain entries in the chart EXACTLY as they appear in the chart, including the abbreviations for the words "with," "without," "before," "after" and "every". The symbols for these words are the letters c, s, a, p, and q with a line (called an overstrike) above each letter.

The problem? Microsoft Word and WordPerfect don't have fonts that use an overstrike over these particular letters. Using just the letters isn't correct and hand drawing a line over the letters is sloppy. Not to worry... I created these medical symbols for you. Click on Word or WordPerfect and save the file to download the medical symbols.
