Here’s the official explanation:
The Nurse Delegation Program, under Washington State law, allows nursing assistants working in certain settings to perform certain tasks--such as administration of prescription medications or blood glucose testing--normally performed only by licensed nurses. A registered nurse must teach and supervise the nursing assistant, as well as provide nursing assessments of the patient's condition.
That means a individual who needs nursing care, may be able to remain in their resident with support of qualified nurse delegator and certified caregiver.
The Nurse Delegator strives to assure delegation is safe and appropriate.
To do this the nurse delegator will :
Must verify caregiver once a week for the first four weeks of insulin delegation
Then every 90 day supervisor visits
