Ok so I've been getting better at it, but I'm still having a hard time with delegation. I get that I cannot delegate unstable patients, unpredictable outcomes, admissions/discharges, teaching, critical thinking/judgment, or assessment. The part I'm having a problem with is what specifically each person is
allowed to do. I looked in the book and went back to my notes, but there are no specifics. I was told to consult the state nursing practice act for specific info(I'm in PA), but it contradicted the practice questions. Specifically that LPN/LVN can do "skills" but cannot do IV meds. The nursing practice act it states that they are allowed to initiate and administer IV fluids and medications in section 21.145. I'm also unsure what exactly is meant by "skills," as there are a lot of different things that it could mean. Can anyone help me clarify what exactly the LPN/LVN, CNA, and UAP can do according to NCLEX?
