Accountability

  1. Ran up against a scenario and need advice. If an LPN is caring for a patient but an RN is "charging" who is responsible if wound care doesn't get performed that shift? I thought both, because they both carry licensure and have both accepted report on the patient ???

    From my understanding, it will ultimately go back on the RN. Just like everything they will of course be reprimanded..but as the RN with the same patients as them, you are responsible
