      Bugs and comments:

      • Give First dose right away check box is missing


      • what happens to the free form text box in the green zone, can a doctor uncheck this and complete the prescription?
      • Do we need to capture time for drugs which are taken at different intervals e.g 4hrs, 9hrs, 12hrs,17hrs?
      • What are the other routes apart from Oral, IV, IM
      • should we use abbreviations for unit of measure?

      Phase 2

      • Show hints: an expandable link that shows hints on how the drug can be prescribed
