Physician's Orders, Use of Nursing Resources, and Subsequent Clinical Events
Griner, Paul F.; Vautrain, Robert L.
Journal of Medical Education, 53, 2, 125-8, Feb 78
Orders written by medical residents to be carried out on newly-hospitalized patients were reviewed to determine the frequency of vital signs orders. Subsequent clinical events requiring nurses to contact house officers were determined. Data suggest that physicians should request nurses to use more efficient methods of clinical observation.
