PHC encourages Medical Staff to write all medication orders within the indivisual patient's health care record (electronic or hard copy) and discourages the use of verbal orders for medications. When prescribing medications, the following are required:
- Date and time of prescription.
- No use of unapproved abbreviations for the medication or administration instructions (as per list below).
- Clearly indicate who you are, by printing your name after the signature, and including your pager number, and college license number
