Pharmacy should not have to pull nurses to sign for narcotics.

Not only does it pull nurses away from patients, it also takes more time for pharmacy techinicians to find a nurse to sign for the controls.  It is a hassle for both pharmacy and nurses.  The controls are regulated enough to be accounted for if there was a discrepency.
