Question: Why do I need to re-sign a Restricted Medication Therapy Plan when only the date has been changed?
Context: Therapy Plans can be entered in advance and expected dates may change. While nursing can make changes to Therapy Plans, plans with Restricted Medications cannot be signed by nurses. Therefore, if there is a date change to a Restricted Medication Therapy Plan, the plan will then have to be re-signed by the prescriber. (Note that Connect Care is continuing to look at options to reduce this workload on prescribers.)
Answer: If a date has been changed in a Restricted Medication Therapy Plan, you will receive a notice in your In Basket indicating that review and re-sign is required.
- In the "Recurring Treatments" folder of your In Basket, select the relevant patient.
- Click on the 3 dots icon above the message and select "Open Plan" from the dropdown menu that appears.
- Review and edit, if necessary.
- Sign the plan.
