Your institution defines the process of verbal orders.
I was just wondering if anyone knows who makes the determination as to whether we can receive verbal orders and relay same to the patient? Is this governed by the State? I work as a CEP in NJ.
Fortunately that is not the case here where I am at Kaiser Permanente in Colorado. I essentially have same scope as the RNs with the exception of delivering IV medications.
This question was posted during the CEPA webinar on licensure & reimbursement (Jan 2021). The person that asked this question said s/he had worked in cardiac rehab for many years as a CEP with the RCEP credential. In his/her institution they are not allowed to communicate orders from physicians to patients. Is this true for all institutions? Can other CEPs place orders on behalf or physicians and/or communicate orders between physicians and patients?
