I work in a Massachusetts nursing home.  After doing 16 1/2 hours, I passed an unfinished task onto the following shift.  She completed the shift, but didn't do a note on what she did.  My DON is trying to blame me for it.  She states I should have stayed and completed the task myself.  I thought after 16 hours a nurse couldn't stay any longer.  Does anyone know where to find the exact law.  I have been able to find it for an RN in a hospital setting.  What about a long term care setting?  Any thoughts.....
