Delegation In The Workplace Week 7
Apply the principles of delegation in the healthcare setting.
Demonstrate the use of clinical reasoning in prioritizing and evaluating the delivery of client care.
Demonstrate principles of collaborative practice within the nursing and healthcare teams fostering mutual respect and shared decision-making to achieve stated outcomes of care.
For this discussion, we are going to focus on delegation in the workplace. Read the following scenario, review the 2019 Regulations Governing the Practice of Nursing document from the Virginia Board of Nursing, Part VI (pages 20-23. see attached and then submit your answers the three questions below (Be sure to reference your information source in APA format!) You are working the night shift on a medical unit and have been assigned charge nurse responsibilities. You are working with four RNs, one LPN, and two CNAs (nurse’s aides or care partners). A patient becomes pulseless and is not breathing, and the nurse assigned to the patient’s care calls a code. The nurse is occupied at this patient’s bedside for 1.5 hours until the patient is stabilized and transferred to the intensive care unit. The nurse also has four other assigned patients. In addition to the nurse assigned to the patient requiring resuscitation, two of the other RNs working on your unit are assisting in the code.
(1) During the time of the resuscitation efforts, what tasks could be delegated to the UAP (NCP) in order to help with the care of the patients that are assigned to the three RNs that are involved in the resuscitation?
(2) How will you, as the charge nurse, maintain the safety of the other patients on your unit while the three RNs are occupied with the resuscitation efforts?
(3) How might effective delegation to other team members contribute to care for the patients on the unit?
Your response should be scholarly, between 150 and 200 words for each question, and include at least one peer-reviewed nursing journal article to support your comments. (Your in-text citations and reference should in in correct APA format.) Be sure to use correct grammar and sentence structure.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
