    You are definitely doing the right thing by forcing the issue until it is resolved. There is no reason why you should have to give your signiture for an unlicensed person to administer medications. I dont' see how that is saving time because you still have to take the time to double check the medication and sign it. This also puts you at risk for several liability issues especially if your signiture is there saying that you approved of the administration. It is not fair for you to have to be responsible for a task that the unlicensed working is doing that should never be delegated to them to begin with. It just doesn't make sense to me, how they can expect a nurse to be respnsible for allof her actions and then also force her to be responsible for someone elses actions when the unlisenced person isn't even trained to do the task. It seems like the hospital is trying to cut corners on paying the unlisenced personnel less money for a job that they hospital should be paying more quailfied personnel. Medication errors are a major problem that affects nurses and this is not a step in the direction to correct the situation.
