Pre-Op Order without Rx Rights

Recommended Posts

Carefull: What do you mean " without prescriptive authority"?


ALL state licenses allow prescriptions IF and only if, the SP authorizes it..


So what do you mean no rx authority?


If you mean no DEA, but you SP. and collaborative practice agreement statement allows you to write for Rxs, then okay.


If you are not authorized to prescribe by an agreement between you and the sp, then no you cannot rx.


However, if your doc doesn't allow you to rx, what does your hospital credentials authorize you to order?


Your hospital privileges MAY allow you to order anything IF there is countersignatures or presumed countersignatures.


Otherwise you will need to Ryder the preop abx as a verbal order, or as a preop protocol set established by he doc.


The key here is the phraseology... What does " no prescriptive authority" refer to in your question?
