Aspen University Nursing Delegation in Practice Discussion

0 Comments

Description

Discussion Question:
Below are some common delegation issues with examples. Give your own examples of over-delegation, under-delegation, and refusal to accept a legitimate delegation, and explain what you would do in each case.   
Over-delegation. (Would you pass my medications for me and sign off my orders? I’m really busy).
Under-delegation. (I’ll do it myself. The nursing assistant argues with me when I ask her to do something/I always have to do it over).
Refusal to accept assignment of legitimate delegation. (I don’t know how to do that very well/I have too much work already/It’s always me that gets the work; ask someone else/I’m too busy/I won’t be able to do a very good job, but if that’s what you want…)
Assignment Description
Delegation in Practice
What does your State Board of Nursing say about Unlicensed Assistive Personnel and their role, and the role of the Registered Nurse? Describe the responsibilities of the Registered Nurse when delegating patient care tasks.
How does the ICU environment differ from a general medical-surgical unit as far as assigned responsibilities for Unlicensed Assistive Personnel?
