Thank you for your comments. We never meant to imply that text messaging should be used for physician orders. We completely agree that computerized physician order entry is important, and that patient privacy is always of the utmost importance. The American Journal of Critical Care and the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses do not in any way support or condone non-Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act compliant communication in any form.
