Is this a complete MD order - Page 2Register Today!
- Dec 6, '12 by NamasteNurseTRAMPD...as we learned in school, an order MUST have the correct time, route, amount, med, patient and diagnosis.
ex: Spiriva, 18mcg cap, inhale 1 cap via handihaler, BID dx: COPD is what the prescription should read.
The doctor was in the wrong. In my facility we always re-write the scripts that come in from outside visits. They have to be on our order forms for our pharmacy and signed by the facility MD anyway.
