So we have faxes, electronic charting and physicians' orders are obviously being done remotely.
I wonder, if someday, these orders can be transmitted via "text messaging or voice mail."
Thus, preventing words getting lost in translation.
Any facilities taking MD orders via text now-a-days?!?!.... I wonder!
I think this is safe unless a loony teen grabs a hold of the doctor's phone and started ordering pot brownies to be added on a patient's diet.
