LEGAL NOTICE TO THE FOLLOWING ALLNURSES SUBSCRIBERS: Pixie.RN, JustBeachyNurse, monkeyhq, duskyjewel, and LadyFree28. An Order has been issued by the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota that affects you in the case EAST COAST TEST PREP LLC v. ALLNURSES.COM, INC. Click here for more information
It depends on the facility you work at as far as RN's noting orders, at my facility, orders are written in black ink, the ward clerk takes them off/initials in black, but the nurse has to sign off in red ink. Everywhere is different, but I have seen doctors write orders in blue ink and once we had a doctor that wrote like three pages of orders with a purple sparkle pen. Go figure. I would just follow your facility's policy.
