Nurses want to be able to write prescriptions and the House subcommittee looking at the issue could vote on a measure next week. The Medical Association of Georgia is opposed and are running radio ads to voice their opposition. The radio ads in my view are a over the top. As they talk of the dangers of letting people who “haven’t been to medical school” write prescriptions, a fast food order taker asks “would you like a prescription with that?” Now, maybe giving nurses this authority is not a good idea, but to compare them with fast food order takers is not fair.
What about this? Did anyone else hear this radio ad? Is it a good idea to give Nurses the “right to write?”
