Hello everyone!I've been a telemetry nurse for a little over a year now and have just begun cross-training in the emergency department. One new caveat--doctors giving verbal orders! For example, after telling a doctor that so-and-so has pain, he would say: "Give 1 gram of tylenol!"With that said, do you put in orders or do you wait for the doctor to put the medications in themselves? What about that situations when the doctor is at the bedside, stating, "Go and grab me this?" With them not being able to put in an order at the computer, do you put it in yourself? Do you feel safe doing this?The two nurses I've been under have told me to wait until the doctor puts in the order, which I enjoy, because it feels much, much safer! Sometimes I have noticed that many doctors either lag on putting in orders or just completely forget about it. So far, a lot of the times, I have kindly reminded them, stating, "Oh, hey doc, can you put that order in for so-and-so?" But sometimes when I nag, I feel like I'm being bothersome (but I don't want to make a med error). In my opinion, it should be standard policy that doctors should put in ALL orders, but that's just me. And I know it depends on hospital policy as well.Thoughts?
