Time Period Ending: 3/31/2013
What We Are Doing:
Note, this Measure is no longer part of the NPSGs. As it relates to our practice it is PeaceHealth St John Medical Center's policy that verbal orders from the doctor are written down immediately and read back to make sure the order is clearly understood. The doctor or other Provider must then sign the order within 48 hours. We review records continuously to make sure this practice is done every time.
