If you are thinking about using a hospital note to take some time off work you need to read this article first. If you do it right, it will get you some much needed free time. If you don’t do it right, you will have too much free time which you will be using to find another job. This is your free insider view of how to use a fake hospital note to take off work.
The key to pulling this off is believeability. First you want to find a template for your note. There are plenty of free sources of templates online, but you get what you pay for. The price of purchasing a quality hospital note is nothing compared to the cost of getting caught and loosing your job. You will want to do some research to find a template that fits your needs.
One of the things you will want to consider when looking for a quality hospital note template is the name of the hospital and the doctor. You want to make sure the names are believable. Some notes are sold as novelty items. You will want to steer clear of these for obvious reasons. You also want to find one that provides an address close to your area. If you live in a small town, you will need one that is fully customizeable because your employer will know if the hospital on your note doesn’t exist in your area.
Will your employer call the number on your note and see if you were actually there? Let’s face it some employers are easier to work for or even fool then others. If you think your employer will actually call the number on your note you can pay for a service where someone will actually answer the number and back up your story.
Another thing to consider is what sort of “illness” you want to have. You will need to take into consideration things like how much time off you want and the time of year. Having the flu may get you a week off of work, but it may not work too well in August. The great thing about using a hospital note instead of a doctors note is that it opens up more possibilities. You can have an emergency stomach virus that just lasts a few days, or a severe sprain that lasts for a week or two. You can also be involved in a car accident and take as much time as you want based on how severe your injuries are. Just make sure to let everyone know you were riding with a friend. Otherwise you may have some questions about your car being fine when you go back to work.
If you do decide you need an emergency hospital visit, make sure you do a little planning beforehand. It may even be a good idea to have a template and a game plan in place ahead of time for when that “It’s one of those days” bug does hit you. If you already have your plan in place it will be much easier to execute on short notice. If you want to read about about acquiring a great doctor’s note, check out our home page.
