The MEC voted to approve the following changes to the Medical Staff Rules and Regulations:
Section 12. Medical Records
13. All orders (except verbal orders) must be dated, timed, and authenticated by the prescriber, or by another practitioner who is responsible for the care of the patient and has been credentialed by the Medical Staff and has been granted privileges which are consistent with the written orders. Preprinted order sets with multiple pages must be dated, times, legible, and authenticated on each page. Orders MAY NOT be sent via text message, SMS message, or email. Orders sent by these means WILL NOT be accepted. All verbal orders must be dated, timed, and authenticated within ninety-six (96) hours by the prescriber or another practitioner who is responsible for the care of the patient and been credentialed by the Medical Staff and granted privileges which are consistent with the written orders. Whenever possible, orders for drugs and biologicals shall be in writing, dated, and signed by the individual responsible for the care of the patient. On those infrequent occasions when telephone or verbal orders must be used for drugs and biologicals, the orders shall be accepted only by authorized personnel and they shall be dated, timed, and authenticated within ninety-six (96) hours by the prescriber or another practitioner who is responsible for the care of the patient and has been credentialed by the Medical Staff and granted privileges which are consistent with the written orders. All orders written by medical students must be co-signed by the supervising practitioner before execution of the order. All verbal orders require verification (read-back) of the complete order by the person receiving the order. When an order is directly communicated by a practitioner to a nurse, registered pharmacist, certified physical therapist, certified respiratory therapist, licensed nuclear medical technologist, registered dietician, occupational/speech therapist, certified lab personnel, licensed radiological technologist, or other appropriately qualified person, the person receiving the order is responsible for assuring that the order is correct and is required to question any order that he suspects is not correct.
