This question came up recently in my unit. If you are discharging a complex kiddo from ICU to home (trach/vent dependent for instance) who teaches the parents CPR? In the NICU I worked in (same hospital) we taught EVERY parent CPR prior to discharge regardless of diagnosis/complexity. We were told that nurses could teach them since we weren't "certifying" them just teaching them how to keep their baby alive until EMS arrived. We rarely discharge from the cicu and the nurse this past week was very concerned that she had the task to teach a complex patients parents CPR, she didn't feel it was her place and made quite a stink about it even going as far as to say she didn't want the parents to sue her if they did something wrong and said "well this is how the nurse told us to do it".
Thoughts? How does your unit do it?
