Advice vs Advise
Physicians commonly give verbal advices to patients. They also commonly place a note in their medical records that they gave advice to their patients. In their written medical reports, physicians commonly use the words “advice” and “advise.”
Oftentimes, physicians erroneously use one for the other. Example: Advise was given and the patient was adviced to take care of his wound.
Advice is a noun while advise is a verb.
Thus, in the example above, the correct use of the two words should be as follows: Advice was given and the patient was advised to take of his wound.
So, physicians, beware of this common pitfall.
Place “advice” if you are going to use a noun form and place “advise” if you are going to use a verb form.
