Good Morning, All, A member asked us the following:
What is your process for entering verbal orders that might be used during an
urgent situation (not codes, but other emergency situations like perhaps a
psychiatric episode)? - Provider enters the order into the medical record
after the emergency is over- Should the provider not enter the order into the
electronic medical record, then the nurse who removed the drug from the
automated dispensing cabinet on override, is obligated to enter the verbal
order and have that order go to the providers queue for approval
- Any other processes?
Thank you, in advance!
