Before the age of rapidly advancing technology, the only way a nurse could get a needed physician order was to try to get in touch with the doctor directly through a variety of means. Depending upon the urgency, this could mean anything from leaving a note on the chart, calling the office and waiting for a call back, leaving a message on his voice mail, or waiting to find him on rounds.
