I've got a question for you all. I've seen some nurses take orders from physicians and write them certain ways that I'm not sure is within our scope of practice? This question may seem silly, but i'm a new nurse and just wondering.For example, one of my coworkers patients had just had a back surgery and his legs were numb, so the doctor ordered a CT scan of his lumbar spine.The nurse wrote the order as follows: CT Scan of lumbar spine without contrast. Dx: numbness both legs.Is it within our scope of practice to write the dx part? Granted this could just be for the ward clerk because they always have to put in the purpose for the scan.
