need help determining if the nursing task is appropriate for delegation. Review the decision tree located in the nurse practice act: WAC 246-840-940 49 Nurse Delegation Nurse Delegation is based on the Nursing Process: Assess Plan/Implement Evaluate 50

Nurse Delegation Evaluate Evaluation of delegation occurs every 90 days. There is no exception Supervisory visits have 2 components: 1. RN evaluates the client: Head to toe assessment Assess client to determine if the client status continues to be stable and predictable Evaluate the clients response to the delegated nursing task Modify tasks if needed Retrain LTCWs if needed 51

Nurse Delegation Evaluate 2. RN evaluates the continued competency of each delegated LTCW: Evaluation can be direct or indirect Observation or demonstration Record review Verbal description Assess care provided Documentation submitted in last 90 days Validate current credentials 52

Nurse Delegation Evaluate Modifications to tasks: Update Instructions and Task form Retrain LTCWs on updated tasks Rescind LTCWs who are no longer delegated to client Rescind entire caseload Assumption of caseload

53 Nurse Delegation Evaluate Update instructions and task form if: Nursing task has changed Added, discontinued, or modified RN verifies the new orders with the health care provider Determines if the task can be delegated Determines if delegation can occur immediately or if a site visit is required. If the task can not be completed immediately the RN initiates and participates in developing an alternative plan to meet the needs of the client. 54

Nurse Delegation Evaluate RN role in rescinding: RN initiates and participates in a safe transition plan with case managers, family member's, and the client. RN documents the reason for rescinding and the plan for continuing the nursing task Who will provide the service in lieu of delegation 55 Nurse Delegation Evaluate Rescind delegation if:

Client safety is compromised Client is no longer stable and predictable Staff turnover makes delegation difficult Staff unwilling or unable to perform nursing task Task performed incorrectly Client requests new staff When any license lapse Facility LTCW RN 56 Nurse Delegation Evaluate
