Ran up against a scenario and need advice. If an LPN is caring for a patient but an RN is "charging" who is responsible if wound care doesn't get performed that shift? I thought both, because they both carry licensure and have both accepted report on the patient ???

From my understanding, it will ultimately go back on the RN. Just like everything :( they will of course be reprimanded..but as the RN with the same patients as them, you are responsible
