When delegating duties, RNs must consider a number of factors such as the complexity of the task, potential risks associated with it, resources available to complete it, skill level required to perform it properly, etc. They must also take into account any legal issues related to delegation which might include applicable state laws on delegation or liability concerns if something goes wrong during implementation. Furthermore, it is important for RNs to prioritize tasks based on urgency and importance since there may be multiple demands on their time that need attention.
One legal issue nurses should be aware of when delegating is that under some State laws LPNs are not allowed to undertake certain treatments or procedures unless specifically directed by an RN or Medical Doctor. This means that before assigning a duty an RN must determine if it falls within their scope of practice—if not then another healthcare provider who does have the necessary qualifications should be delegated instead in order ensure proper care delivery.
Another legal concern pertains how much authority UAP’s have when performing direct patient care activities like bathing or feeding; these individuals are typically limited in what they can do without first consulting an RN due because they lack formal training/education regarding nursing concepts like assessment skills which could put patients at risk if left unchecked.
Time management plays a key role when delegating duties and prioritizing tasks as well since most health professionals have limited availability throughout the day which makes it difficult for them allocate enough time towards all responsibilities—especially during busy times where multiple requests come up simultaneously. To this end improving one’s own time management skills can help them better manage competing priorities thereby ensuring that every task gets done in a timely manner while still allowing adequate breaks throughout shifts so health professionals remain rested & alert while taking care of clients’ needs.
In summary delegation and prioritization are essential parts of any nurse’s job but they must be done with caution given potential risks involved if proper protocols aren’t followed; additionally recognizing importance good time management plays can help reduce stress levels related workload pressure thus creating healthier working environments overall
