Cherokee- great (loose) fit, and wear like iron!!
I looooooooooove S.C.R.U.B.S. also, occasionally treat myself- really great pants!!
For the life of me, I couldn't understand why anyone would do this... it just seemed SO common sense to me NOT to sign anything I haven't personally witnessed/done.
I have been steadfastly refusing to sign such orders, and get such responses as "don't you trust me?" and "everyone else does it".
I'm going to talk to my boss and pursue this further as I am getting a lot more requests to do this the last couple of weeks
Thanks!! for your input- I appreciate it!
My first post :smilecoffeecup:
I work in the acute care setting, in the Float Pool, and this is my kerfluffle with posting telephone orders.
A nurse working on the unit with me came over to me and said "can you post these for me"; it was a fairly long set of telephone orders that SHE had taken- she wanted me to post and sign off on them.
I asked around, and a lot of the other nurses do the same thing- they take telephone orders and have another nurse post and sign off on them. The nurse signing off the orders does not hear the phone call from either end.
The nurse who takes the orders does NOT sign off or post them, just their sig after the MD's name and the T.O.
Now, am I being too AR or what, to my way of thinking (as well as how I was taught) why would I want to sign off and post something that I never heard??? To me, that says I witnessed it.
My mind's in a muddle. LOL
I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I am working :smilecoffeeIlovecof
