MC seekersCreated by:
The issue of MC (Medical Certificate) seekers is always a problem for physicians especially those in the family medicine practice.
We do see time and time that there are people who just walk in requesting for MCs and refusing medication.
Currently, the right to issue medical certificates and the duration issued depends on the judgement of the physician.
We do not have a proper guideline to follow as to which condition or to what extent should we give.
For example, a young patient who has a small blister on his feet came to request for MC, is it justifiable to give?
Will like to put to discussion as to what would be one's threshold of issuing MC.
