I disagree. I think the OP is completely correct. She is being asked to delegate tasks to people who aren't properly trained or qualified. I think that is pretty negligent if she does so willingly.
Regardless OP, even if your license itself wasn't in jeopardy, I can 100% guarantee you that if you were to be sued for an incident that happened under your command, your employer wouldn't do anything to help you out of the situation.
I didn't pick that up from her post. When was she asked to delegate a task to to an unqualified person?
I saw that her boss had house keeping assist with ADLs.
In what way would the RN license be in jeopardy?
Are there some good examples of this?
There are many good reasons to leave a bad job.
Where does all the fear of losing licenses come from?
Here is an AN thread about losing licenses
There are no mentions of any nurse ever losing a license for working in a facility in which a housekeeper helped somebody get dressed.
In fact, in each and every case, the nurse who lost a license lost it for what he, or she, decided to do. Never, ever, ever, for what somebody else did.
Some things I picked up from reading the thread:
- Don't divert drugs.
- Don't commit felonies.
- Don't lie to the BON. Or on your documentation for that matter.
- Don't host a porno site.
- Don't fake cancer.
- Don't inject your own child with feces. Though it hasn't been tested, you probably should avoid injecting anybody with feces, as that could also be problematic.
