    PTA Direction/Supervision Advice

    Hello! I've searched the forum and haven't found anything with this discussion, but please correct me if I'm wrong! I work in a small rural clinic privately owned by one individual. With this being such a small clinic, rules are pretty lax and PTAs do have quite a bit more independence than...
