I will be slightly vauge but the facts are true and I have first hand knowledge of them.
UAP's (unlicensed assistive personal) are being used in the ICU. they are taking a patient assingment and charting assessments. mangments take is that the UAP doing this are nursing students and will eventually be nurses anyway.
the nurses of course have liability concerns with it. mangment swears that nurses will not be responsible for mistakes made.
the state board of Nursing has knowledge of the goings on and are doing nothing. I think this is a slippery sloap if nursing students could do this couldn't any lay person
