Well first I had no clue that dietitians can now writes orders and take verbal orders from physicians (depending on state) but it was put forward by CMS and practiced. I don't get many memos. Yet,now out of my daily curiosity, or more like checking the weekly **** ups I found the dietitian wrote an order by any standard is a denial of rights of the patient. When I asked my house supervisor how? I got an "its a known issue", yet its a known issue for 10 days and no one has done anything. The rational is what killed me was "due to infection control". So, what am I missing? Am I in the wrong thinking this is Waaaaaaaa(a^1000)aay outside a dietitians scope of practice? Or am I an uppity nurse that needs to shut up?
