Med tech role in nursing homes

by mlbirkner mlbirkner (New) New

Does anyone know if it is legal in the state of Missouri, for a medication technician be a "charge nurse" in a skilled long term care facility for all three shifts? Or if you know where I would go to find out?


Specializes in Neuro/ ENT. Has 15 years experience.

In the state of MO CMTs can only assist LPNs and RNs with medication administration. They should never be in the position to be in charge of LPNs and RNs, that is not within their scope.
