What do we know about verbal/telephone orders
1. Do they need to be co-signed by the practitioner who ordered?
2. What type of orders can or can not be given via verbal order to an RN for signature. examples: standing order for diabetic supplies, eval & treat PT, orders for home health. All orders are either part of a standing orders protocol, or, if not than directly discussed with the provider. The question remains - would you initial or sign on it?
Oy... I wish it would have been straight forward. maybe it is
Any information is well appreciated, thanks in advance!
