Pharmacists must document verbal medication orders in a patient’s chart immediately upon receiving such order from an “authorized prescriber.” The prescriber must countersign the order within 24 hours unless the law requires otherwise. Nurses and physician assistants may act upon the order as if it came “directly from the prescriber.”
