I think everyone has an initial period they are a little jumpy at calling doctors and taking orders. Joint commission require you read the order back to the doctor when taking a telephone order. Just remember, the doctor cant jump through the phone and bite you, he cant kill you, he cant maime or otherwise beat you so the only thing that may get hurt is a little bruise to your ego. Dont be afraid of them, they dont know all, and they cant hurt you. You can always report them if they are to abusive, that is completely uncalled for and your nurse manager should stick up for you. Because without you, they would be in there taking care of their patients by themselves.
