Did you ever think yours was the right way to pronounce certain medication names? Ever think you were always right? Ever hear someone else pronounce a drug name and go "WTF? How did you come up with that?"
Ever think your coworkers or colleagues were absolutely crazy because they think their way sounds normal? Like yours is right but theirs is SO wrong?
I had a nurse phone in Levaquin for a patient. She pronounced it Lev-a-kwin. When I repeated the prescription back to her, I pronounced it, correctly I might add, as LEEV-a-kwin. She then corrected with her incorrect version. Sorry lady, I know my way is correct. Do not correct me.
That little line on top of the "e" is called a "Macron". It is used to indicate a long vowel sound. In this case we would pronounce it as "E" instead of "Eh".
