Nothing in the Kansas Nurse Practice Act prevents a nurse from receiving a physicians order through an und person. The Healing Arts Act does not preclude a physician from relaying an order through an und person.
As a rule the Kansas Nurse Practice Act requires that an individual must be d to supervise the nursing process. A non-nurse could not supervise nursing practice. However a non-nurse could supervise basic employment issues ie: cleanliness, appearance, time issues, etc.
Making asments involves the nursing process and judgment regarding patient acuity and staff skill mix.
If these three criteria are met an LPN may engage in care, nursing diagnosis, treatment, counsel and health teachingsupervision, administration, teaching of the nursing process and execution of the medical regimen. Any post basic education obtained can be considered and should meet the industry standard.
The general rule of law K. See above answer. There are some exceptions to this answer and they are found at K. They include but are not limited to; gratuitous nursing by friends or family, domestic servants, und people who have had a nursing action delegated to them by a nurse, etc. The Healing Arts Act allows physicians to delegate the practice of medicine to anyone the physician deems qualified.
Qualified could mean by education, licensure, or on the job training. When a physician delegates it must be appropriate ie; a specific task for a specific patient.
It is the education level and content most common to all individuals that perform the same activity. Example; a phlebotomist receives basic education on anatomy, tube selection for tests required, blood drawing procedure. The level of education required is not set by statute or regulation but is industry driven.
Look to see what most facilities or liability carriers require. But it must be done correctly or one will be guilty of falsifying a patient record. First, the information must be truthful. Example One cannot go back and make up vital s and fill-in blanks because a clerk says no payment will occur without them.
Second, check the facility policy and procedure and follow those directions on late entries. Third, if there is no policy or procedure it is probably most correct to identify the actual time of information addition and circle the time of the actual nursing act to show it is a late entry.
It is not uncommon for a nurse to forget to record something, remember it later and on return to work make a late entry. It is the normal course of business. One should never go back and change something on the original writing. A nurse is bound by the facility policy and procedure. You must know and follow your facility policy and procedures unless you believe it is clearly substandard.
