Who signs off on orders??
I have long been under the (possible) misconception that a nurse
was required to sign off on orders received, verbal or written, from physician/physician office.
It has been my understanding that this is standard nursing practice and was part of the flow to ensure both accurate transmittal, responsibility and implementation of any given order.
Is this so where you practice? If so is it in your statutes, organizational policy or is it "standard practice" and unwritten?
would you be so kind as to indicate your state of practice in your post?? Thanks tons!
Please add your
