    Physicians are being shuffled in my facility, I understand that there needs to be two orders. One from the physician relinquishing care and the other excepting care. My question is, can the NP who (all from the same practice) usually rounds on these patient's write one order stating Dr. Doe relinquishes care and Dr. Jane excepts?
