I have been an RN for many years, but have not been in hands-on patient care for a long time. I currently work as a Quality Coordinator for a hospital. Due to staffing challenges, there is a proposal for non-clinical staff (such as my department) to assist with patient care activities, such as transporting patients, tray delivery and set up, walking patients to the restroom, responding to call lights, respond to bed alarms, and taking vital signs. I am absolutely willing to do any of these things (some with a bit of training), but I do have a concern. Even though I would not be doing RN duties, do you think I would be expected to respond at an RN level if something happened to a patient in my presence? I haven't even been BLS certified in 10 years... If there is an adverse event with a patient that leads to legal action, is the legal system going to say that since I am an RN I should have responded as as RN should respond? Thanks for your thoughts!
