Order Writing in OK

The CMS guidelines allow Registered Dietitians to write therapeutic diet orders in acute care facilities.  The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) has stated they are following these regulations in Oklahoma.  Therefore, Registered Dietitians in Oklahoma can write diet orders as long as their facility has revised their bylaws and policies to allow it.   

Order writing is not part of the Oklahoma Dietitian License Act, because it is not a legislative function.  Order writing is a regulatory function, and the regulating agency is the Oklahoma State Department of Health.

Please send any questions regarding this issue to the OkAND Delegate, Amanda Jones, at delegate@oknutrition.org
