I was told that there is different laws between skilled and assisted living facilities and staffing policies through the state. I am unable to locate where these are to read for myself. I have been all over the pennsylvania board of nursing site, am I looking in the wrong place? And if a lpn is working without a rn present can they loose their license? I am asking because I was offered a 11-7a position as a night supervisor, I asked on staffing and was told there would be myself and 2-3 aides. I was told that state law says if a skilled facility has under a certain number of beds/patients this was allowed....I have been trying to find this and don't want to take a job that could cause me to get in trouble with my license I worked so hard to get.
Thanks in advance for your help with this
Ps also I read before while in nursing school the guidelines for lpn and the departments do's and dont's for lpn but cant locate it now...help with that would be appreciate too
Sorry so needy tonight lol
