An OR nurse wanted to write up a unit nurse because the informed consent, signed by the MD and the patient had abbreviations that were written by the MD. Is it the witnessing RN's responsibility to inform the MD what and what he cannot write on his surgical informed consent? And the witnessing RN, the PM nurse witnessed and signed the consent, passed the chart over to the day shift RN who sent the patient to OR and now OR nurse wants to write up an incident on the day shift RN. What is the RN's responsibility in regards to informed consent?
I would write the doc up if it was policy. I am no one's secretary!
I bet that OR nurse wouldn't have the ovaries to do it though...
