In order to understand how to make effective fake doctors notes, you must know the aspects that every official doctor’s note must have. Keep in mind that some doctors scribble doctors excuses out on prescription pads while other use official doctors notes. Both styles are appropriate, and the information listed below will be consistent for both.
Every doctors note will have the doctor’s name and all appropriate licenses listed at the top of the form in bold print. Additionally, it may list the doctor’s office, including an address and phone number. If the doctor is in a complex or partnership, it may list that as well, and may even list multiple doctors.
2. Patient Name
The patient’s name will be at the top section of the form. Usually, there is a blank line where the patient name is written or typed. Some offices will print out a doctor’s excuse, in which case, the patient name is printed. For a fake doctors note, it is generally best to use handwriting where possible.
Near the patient name will be a blank line for the date of the visit. A doctors excuse must be dated. In the United States, the date is generally listed in the month/day or month/day/year format. The date should be in the same handwriting used to sign the doctor’s signature.
4. Patient Address
There will be a blank line for the patient’s street address. This line is optional for a note, and is generally in place for a prescription or similar purpose. If this line exists on an excuse note, it is best to fill it out.
5. City, State and Zip
This is an extension of the patient’s address section. Generally, this is only filled out for prescription purposes. Feel free to leave it blank. If you filled in the address section and it looks odd blank, then fill it in.
The gender section will be a blank line or a two checkboxes. This section is optional. If you do fill it out, make sure that it is done correctly. A mistake here is a dead giveaway.
The message area is the most important part of the note. It informs the employer or school of the ailment. This can be filled out in handwriting other than the signature since the receptionist or nurse often starts the form for the doctor.
The signature is the second most important part of the form. Have it match the date, and don’t go overboard trying to create doctors’ scrawl. That is a stereotype, and it may be wise to deviate from it.
