Question about LPN scope of nursing
- 0Feb 16, '11 by WI_home_RNthis should be such an easy question to answer but i just can't get to the bottom of it!! even the state hasn't called me back yet.
i work private duty nursing with a handful of rns and one lpn. our patient just had a port-a-cath placed and we're wondering if its legal for our lpn to administer his abx or is that a "big no?" would she need additional training in iv therapy and certification to be able to do this?
any advice appreciated and welcome!!
