From time to time, sick leaves granted by physicians, cause concern among professionals, patients and institutions that administer the funds required to finance the days of work. This document analyzes different aspects of the form that must be filled by the physician to grant the sick leave, reflects on some important difficulties that are faced by health care professionals to complete the document and proposes changes to the form to correct such difficulties. Also, a proposal for a fairest solution for professionals and patients is presented.
