As far as I am concerned if you signed it then it is your responsiblity if it was or was not done if there is any problem it will come back to you. So say a charge nurse signs off for a UA and the cna forgets to collect it, then don't go yelling to the floor nurse or cna because it was the charge nurse responsiblity to see that it was done.
Also, if you do a 8 hour chart check after the charge nurse signed off the order then you are also accountable that all the orders in that 8 hours were carried out.
