Outdated Requirement

This is an outdated policy which only serves to add red tape to a process. Our hospital system required the attending's name on every prescription, because they could not keep track of changes in which medications were controlled and which were not. We should be targeting this type of legislation for removal in an age where healthcare is having difficulty with hiring and retaining enough staff.
