What orders do physicians co-sign for PAs and APRNs in a hospital setting? All orders? Specific orders?
~RE: physicians sign all of our PA orders. APRN's are independent and do not have orders co-signed.
~RE: We do not require any co-signatures, although with the new CMS admission order changes, we will need the physician to verify the advanced provider's information.
~RE: At this time, CMRC does not require any co-signatures for PAs or ARPNs orders. Our staff physicians will be required to verify admission order changes in the future per CMS.
