Being an LPN for 20+ years I have seen a lot of things. But until recently I have been seeing my coworker do something that I did not think a nurse could do. Or is it being an RN you are able to do this. My coworker writes orders ( new and old ) and have the doctor sign them. But he does not put verbal or telephone or his name in the order. He just writes it out. Has nursing changed and I did not get this memo. Just want to know what is the legal thing for me to do.
