Physician’s information should not be required to be provided when PA prescribe medications

The requirement to include physician’s name on the PA’s prescriptions does not improve patient safety but creates logistical difficulties during patient visits to the clinic. Every time I eprescribe, I have to manually add my supervising physician’s information to the prescription as it is not automatically set in the EMR.
