HUGE Engraving News and a FREE List of Medical Abbreviations

  
  
  

engraverIMG 5937Have you found yourself asking the question, "What's new in the Lauren's Hope engraving department?" Well, I will start with telling you what's new with the engraver. My name is Bryce and I am the master engraver here at Lauren's Hope. I'm the friendly guy who calls with questions about the medical information you'd like engraved on your medical ID tag. I ask questions like, "Can I abbreviate penicillin to PCN?" and "I'd like to suggest a better way to list your emergency contact information." The reason why I spend time calling you regarding your engraving is because I know how important all of your medical information is and I want to make sure that I engrave your vital information in the best possible way. I'm a stickler for centered and legible engraving and like making helpful suggestions. I recognize the fact that every medical ID tag is special and unique, just like you! I love knowing that I am helping people communicate their medical conditions to paramedics, EMT's and first responders in the event of an emergency. I love having a job where I feel like I am doing something important.

So, now that I've shared a bit about my job here at Lauren's Hope I'd really like to tell you what is new with me. What I'm about to share with you is the most exciting and anticipated event of my life. I am getting married! I will be married in Austin, Texas on March 15, 2011. My fiance and I are doing things very much in our own artsy style and some of my co-workers probably think we are crazy for some of the handmade elements we are working on such as fabric animal heads and wooden stands to hold our vegan cupcakes on etc…

 

 

How does this relate to Lauren’s Hope you ask? Well, I am going to be gone for a week and a half and I am the master engraver. Luckily, here at Lauren's Hope we have a very special team of individuals who all bring their own unique style, creativity and quite frankly their care for you, our customer. So, the good ladies here in the corner offices (aka my bosses) have allowed me to train two of my co-workers to do the engraving in my absence. My two apprentice engravers are eager to learn the tricks of the trade and have quickly learned what this job entails.

Now, I don't mean to alarm you since I won't leave for another two weeks, but as I type this blog post one of my new apprentice engravers is doing my job for me. I could get used to this! Since my wedding has been planned for quite some time now everyone here at Lauren's Hope has been able to spend time this year preparing for my absence. I can assure you that the engraving department here at Lauren's Hope is in great shape and I wouldn’t leave if I didn’t know that with absolute certainty. Well, maybe I would, but I promise you that I will be leaving with full confidence in each of my apprentice engravers and I will be excited to come back...a married man!

I want to leave you with my list of the top 25 most commonly abbreviated medical conditions, medications and allergies. I hope you find this list useful when ordering your next medical ID tag.

Sincerely,

Bryce, Master Engraver

I would like to say this was a very interesting article. The abbreviations and suggestions offered are a tremendous tool for us to use. I have ordered 3 bracelets and each time I agnonize over what to put on it along with the abbreviations. Thank you! Best Wishes to Bryce and his future wife!

Thanks, Bryce! You two are really cute together! Have a happy one! And thanks for the nice job on my new medical ID tag; I've been getting quite a few compliments on it.

Melanie, I let Bryce know that you send your congratulations! He is definitely excited about his upcoming nuptuals, but keeps his head in the game while he's here at work. He does such a terrific job making sure each tag is engraved while upholding the highest standards.

Awesome work Bryce. Kudos and blessings for your hard work and dedication to help all of us who need a good strong voice when we can't use our own! 
 
And a huge load of congrats to you and your fiance. I can clearly see you are blessed with love and fun all the way around. And you can't go wrong with marrying on 3/15...which is also my youngest birthday. Good omen for sure. 
 
Enjoy and thanks again for my bracelet!!!! 
 
Cheers!

I just drug Bryce away from the engraver and had him read each of the heart felt comments everyone has left for him. He is so thankful to each of you for wishing him well and can't wait to return a MARRIED MAN!

I have a few to add to his list of 
 
abbreviations:

Other than that, I want to take 
 
this opportunity to wish you and 
 
your bride a very happy and long 
 
marriage and be it filled with 
 
all you hope for. Take it from 
 
those of us who have been married 
 
for 40 years. It is a real 
 
blessing. 
 
 
 
Love to you both, 
 
Linda

Linda, 
 
Thank you so much for adding to our list of common abbreviations! Many people seemed to like having a list of abbreviations and I'd be happy to add your suggestions to a future revised edition.  
 
Many thanks!

It is so heart-warming to know there are people like Bryce who take pride in their work and doing a good job. I re-looked at my ID tag from Lauren's Hope to confirm that the letters and words are uniform as Bryce stated. He is a perfectionist and it shows in the quality of your product. Thank you Bryce for your craftsmnanship and have a wonderful wedding and a happy married life!

These abbreviations were so helpful. I have so many allergies that it was impossible to put them all on until I knew the correct abbreviation to use. Thank you so much.

Crista, That's wonderful to hear! Determining what to engrave is difficult and when space is limited abbreviations can be critical. I'm so happy to hear this list was helpful to you! I will be providing additional lists in future blog posts, so stay tuned.
