i am working in a hospice that i do the continoues care coordination.( i schedule and send other lpns and hhas to pts who are in crisis') the rns call the cc they do the assesment and give the reason of the crisis etc i just call the cc staff to go i also check the documentation in the cc pkt. my company considers this a supervisory position. i have been told that lpns are not supposed to be in supervisor positions. this is not a "charge nurse" position. I am on call 24/7 so i may schd a cc at 11pm or while in the office at 11am. plz give me ur insight!!! i am in ms am i practiceing out of scope bc my company considers me a supervisor?

Frequently LPNs hold your position. You are in an administrative capacity, not a clinical capacity, so there is no problem with that. Should there be any kind of a question, simply discuss the issue with your supervisor in the office, the DPCS for clinical issues, the business manager for admin type issues.

Glad this is addressed by this forum. My hospice has an LPN doing night triage via phone and I wondered if this was out of the scope of practice.
