Delete Individual Prescriptions
Please allow the use of deleting one order of a medication, not just the entire medication
How to delete an old draft prescrition that was not sent. The prescription is still listed on patients active medications and will not allow me to delete it.
We need to be able to delete prescriptions that were written prior to the patient telling us that they need the prescription written as two separate ones with the quantity divided. Or just if we screw up and put in the wrong medicine and then need to change it. We write for buprenorphine and there are a lot of formulations of this medicine so it is not so hard to screw that up.
Sometimes I will write a prescription and record it in the ehr, only to find out later that the patient doesn't have that drug available at pharmacy, or its too expensive at that pharmacy, and i have to order a different medication on the phone. However, the recorded prescription is still on the chart, even though it was cancelled. I would like to be able to delete that one prescription, not the whole thing.
