I recently ran into a situation where I called a doctor and recommended to them a medication for an agitated patient. The patient had not had this medication in the past but had no allergies to it or its contents and no medical condition that would have made the recommendation inappropriate. The doctor wrote the order, patient received med, and no ill effects came from it. My manager is telling me it is out of the nurses scope of practice to recommend a medication to a doctor. Is this true?
