Thank you glad to know I am on the right track with the first example.
The second example is what I have struggled with the most. As a new RN on the floor most of my time with UAPs was delegating to them directly patient care within their scope, ie vital signs, bed baths, showers, sitting the patient up in the chair, meals etc. But this is staff RN to UAP delegation. Not nurse manager to UAP delegation.
I still am not really sure what a nurse manager would delegate directly to a UAP without first going through another RN? Many nurse manager roles cannot be done by a UAP because they involve critical thinking which is outside UAP scope, so I am at a loss.
I only know UAP roles in relation to patient care. Could you tell me what other roles it is you speak of?
Thank you so much.
