ab 394 and utilization of unlicensed assistive personnel

CJM CJM (New) New

I understand that California has signed legislation to stop the unauthorized proliferation and use of unlicensed assistive personnel in acute care settings.They are not allowed to perform the following:

1 Administration of medicine

2 Venipuncture or intravenous therapy

3 Parenteral or tube feedings

4 Invasive procedures including inserting nasogastric tubes,inserting catheters, or tracheal suctioning

5 Assessment of patient condition

6 Educating patients and their families concerning the patient's health care problems,including post discharge.

7 Modeate complexity laboratory tests, and

8 Other functions requiring a substantial amount of scientific knowledge and technical skills. Has any other state done the same and if so which state? I fear that if more states don't give clear definitions on what for example a nurseing assistant can and can not do someone's going to get hurt and someone's going to get sued.
