cannot provide every factor of care a patient may need.
Registered nurses include an obligation with their patients to provide
appropriate and quality healthcare of their scope of practice.
Delegation of basic duties could be accomplished successfully, if the
registered nurse gets the skills, knowledge and the resources
open to delegate the approved jobs. The RN must figure out and
acknowledge her own duties before tasks could be delegated.
There are five guidelines to delegation that are the right task, the
right circumstances, the proper person, the proper directions, the
right supervision and analysis. You need to ask yourself if this
could be delegated.
