Hi all, been a nurse for bout 7 months, and quick question I work on a TCU, and at my facility often times patients come without a clearly stated diagnosis for their medications on file- Our DON has us fax the physicians with med lists asking for a diagnosis for each medication to put on our MARS- it is a stupid waste of time, usually the docs are VERY slow at responding, and in my opinion it makes us seem stupid- What is the diagnosis for Prozac for this patient? Could it be the diagnosis of depression listed in her history?? * insert eye roll here* Anyhow, one of our in-house docs is actually an NP (hooray!) and every time we give her one of these sheets, she hands it back with a note saying "Nursing to do"to which I think "Darn right!" after all, isn't this within our scope of practice? They made us do this in Nursing school for clinicals, so why can't I do it now??????????
