what is team nursing?
to my understanding.... 1 cna, 1 rn, & 1 lpn have 12 pts. and the work is split up.
cna- bed baths, bgm, vitals, ect.
lpn- p.o. meds, dressing changes, ect.
rn- assessments, iv's, nursing notes, ect.
so, the pt. doesn't have a "primary" nurse......sounds messed up to me & that's why i wanted some opinions on how people do it and keep 12 pts. straight & so forth.
i think it's unfair to the rn's who are ultimately responsible, since they have to sign off on procedures that they can't possibly know if they were done or not (by the lpn & cna)????
