Delegating

  1. I live here in the Philippines and R.N. here do almost all of the things needed by the patient. I know that in the U.S. it is different. You have RN, LVN, CNA, LPN, etc. Each of these nurses have different responsibilities.

    Could you please give me the different responsibilities of these nurses? May I know what are the things that RNs could delegate and to whom could they delegate it with?

    Only delegate the most stable patients, and do not delegate a discharge patient.

    What are the things that should be reported to the doctors immediately?
