Input needed

  1. Hello fellow Nurses,
    I am a Nurse who works in Product Management for a large software company. Our software specializes in Clinical and Financial applications for LTC. I am, primarily, responsible for specific clinical applications which includes our Physician's Orders package. I would like to elicit your feedback on the question below:

    Upon entering an order in our software, we allow for a 'print out' of that order(s). What would YOU (as Nurses) say would be the 'title' for this paper document (order)?
    Keep in mind that our Monthly Physician's Orders document is titled, "Physician Orders" (this request came from a User Group meeting)...and we feel it would be far less confusing to have a seperate naming convention for the order(s) that print out upon saving the order. That is where I would like your feedback.

    Also, I would like to utilize this web forum as a 'sounding board', if you will, for other questions that I (we) may have...so, if I post other questions, I would GREATLY appreciate any and all Clinical feedback...

    Thank You,
    Nurse/Product Analyst

    How about Physician Orders (Nursing Copy)?

    In my area of practice, I have the autonomy to write nursing orders. If this is the case with your program, i.e., nursing orders as well as physician's orders may be entered, I would suggest something along the lines of "Medical/Treatment Orders".
