Hi everyone!! I'm posting this on Legal Nursing and General Nursing, just to get a bigger audience. I have a quick question. When we take a telephone order or verbal order we usually write out the order, then end it with TORB/VORB Dr. So-and-so/J. Doe, RN...............right? Recently I found an order where a nurse basically squeezed in her order to transfer a patient to us with the order the doctor himself wrote and signed, and never signed her own name to it. I'm not looking to report this girl, I just want to know if there's an actual law saying you can't do this? I tried looking under the board of nursing website of the state I work in (NH) and couldn't find anything, but I think I just don't know how to look. If it turns out this IS against the law, I just want to make sure the unit director makes a general announcement to everyone that this can't be done. I know I've seen it before, I just figure something had better be done before we find ourselves in trouble. Thanks for any help!!
