1. I am a ob director at a hospital in fla and working with medical records. Our midwifes are not employed by the hospital but are members of our OB groups who have privileges at the hospital. Our medical records person and our quality people are saying that the orders given by a midwife need to be signed off by the physician. Is this this the case in fl and if so (or not) where would I be able to find the guideline .Please help thanks

    Isn't there a licensing board for midwives that could tell you if they are authorized to give med orders?
