Hello. We currently use CPOE on our inpatient side in the hospital I am employed at. We have moved towards using it in the ED also, but several of the physicians are claiming it is slowing them down too much for an ED setting. They are now requesting to have a "scribe" for them in the ED, which they say is to be a nurse that will put in all their orders for them.
Just wondering if anyone else out there is using this method. If so, do you put them all in as verbal orders and let the physician sign them later? If not, how do the orders get put in electronically?
Any insight would be very much appreciated.
