Doctors Certificates

I'm sitting in a lecture and a random thought has come to me.

In order to miss work/exams/assignments, many of us have to provide Doctors certificates. A doctors certificate is basically obtained by going to the doctor... and showing that you're sick.

Hypothetical: If you go to a doctor and are obviously hungover, will your doctor hand over a doctors certificate?

What's your thoughts?

(And yes... this is all a pure hypothetical)

I've got a doctors cert here in my hand, and all it states is that I'm unfit for work... not why... so maybe... if you found the right doctor....

I think it depends on the doc, but I dunno.

Anyway if you're that desperate you can fake any number of illnesses without the doctor being able to verify either way if you're really sick.

Of course, that'd be fraud. (-:

Just print one off yourself and sign it.

They're not hard to re-create.

If I'm sick, I'm sick.

I rarely take sickies, so when I do, nobody questions me.

It depends on how ethical the doctor is.

A lot of doctors will give you a certificate without batting an eyelid.

Others will show you the door, quicksmart.

Medical Centre...

They Bulk bill so get payed by Medicare, each doctors certificate they issue in 2 minutes is worth money to them...

As for printing your own, In some of my many jobs I have had I have printed doctors certificates for a Doctor and received them as a manager, I can tell you there is nothing special about them, random paper. In fact some doctors even have a template on their computer, type in your name, sickness, press print then sign it.

Not that I'm condoning it, but if you got the name of a local medical centre and Doctor there, whacked it on a letter head you made up and scribbled on the bottom, chances are no-one would question it.

Mind you you wouldn't want to do it very often or they just might.

Believe it or not, many employers DO ring up the doctor, to see if the Medical Certificate is legit.

If they find out that the Certificate is fake, then your job will definitely be on the line.

Is it a risk worth taking?...I think not.

My doctor offered to give me a certificate for not being able to sleep due to a tickle in my throat :P

I think that she thought I was just making the story up to try and get a doctor's certificate out of it, she seemed a bit surprised when I turned down her offer.

I still have the fricking tickle though, and its still stopping me from sleeping >.<

The doctor I go to doesn't even check if your sick or not... Just rocked up said I threw up in the morning had been feeling sick and was feeling a bit better now, he printed the certificate out, signed it and away I was, 2 minute process.

For a day off with relaxation and white wine? You bloody bet.

And if they ring up and find out it's a fake, just learn to lie really well.

Ha ha... That reminds me of a 'colleague' whom recently went to the doctors, suffering from illness. The doc asked, 'how much time off do you want' etc... My colleague found it almost difficult to get some medical attention!

Because of the privacy laws, doctors cant write on your certiface whats wrong with you, they can only write stuff like you're unfit or that you suffer from on ilness for work for a specific date .

I was away for work for 3 days last week because i was sick, my work mates wanted to know what was wrong with me coz I'm never sick, I told them that I had the horse flu.

Unless it's workcover... Then they want daily stool samples. At least I thought they did... Ungrateful cunts.
