I am wondering if anyone knows the answer to, or where I can find the answer to, a question regarding who can and who cannot legally receive doctor's orders in Indiana. I am an RN working in a physician's office. In this office, a tech who has no official medical training, has been receiving doctor's orders for medications and writing prescriptions. Today I noted a prescription she wrote for twice the acceptable dosage. She does not consult with an RN or the physician before passing these prescriptions on to the patient. I'm wondering if she can legally write these prescriptions and the physician is just responsible for her, or if it is illegal. There is a plethora of information out there, and I haven't yet found the specifics I am looking for. Thank you.
