Results: A total of 670 SIQ's were issued to health care professionals at CMH Lahore in 2014.
We retrospectively attempted to discern whether correlates of SIQ patterns differ between male and female doctors, female physicians and female nurses, military and civilian doctors and senior doctors (HCAs and specialists) and junior doctors (postgraduate residents and house officers).
SA in a military setup is noted in standardized SIQ books kept at the offices of male and female staff surgeon and used for recording short spells of sickness.
