Research Facts
Dr. George trained in Canada and Scotland, with a specialty in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, and began working at Kingston General Hospital in 1963.
These prescriptions were written around the same time that penicillin came to the community.
Many pharmaceutical abbreviations are used in these pages, some of which include "t.i.d.p.c.", which means "three times daily after food", "Rx", which means recipe, and "mitte", which means "send" or "number of tablets provided", and "Sig", which means "write on the label".
