I am working on a delegation assignment for school. As I try to "think critically" and hash through this material that really hasn't been taught to me I have run into some really big questions & hoped some of you Kansas RNs could help me.
1. Can an LPN draw blood from a central line? I say no, am I right?
2. Can an LPN initiate a portacath? I say no.
3. Call the MD for orders for a patient who has suddenly lost consciousness? I say the RN has to do this.
4. Administer bolus NG feeding. I say RN.
I understand that laws are different in different states & since I'm in school in KS, I am asking mostly KS RNs. As I googled these topics I have found a lot of variations in other states!
Thanks so much for you help!
