This may seem like a silly question, but do any of you write Stat orders on the MAR (for example, 10 units of Toronto Insulin stat)? I don't as I think that's a waste of time, and as long as I initialed the time that I carried out the order and my name next to the order, it's all documented.
Some nurses at my unit like to write stat orders on the MAR...there's not a policy in our unit about that. It seems like its more of a preference thing.
What about you? What do you do?
