This storyboard does not have a description.
As an Emergency Center RN, I am able to delegate appropriate tasks to Certified Nursing Assistants.
Hi Mandy, of course. I will document the amount voided in the patient's chart.
Hi Stevie, would you mind emptying Mr. Neff's catheter and measuring his output?
Mr. Neff, I see that the CNA, Stevie, came in and emptied your catheter. I saw in your chart that you voided 300 mL.
The five steps of delegation are to decide the right task, right circumstances, right person, right communication, and right evaluation.
After checking the job description of a CNA, Mandy knows that Stevie is certified to measure intake and output, and knows that this will be appropriate for the patient. Communication is an important step in delegation, the RN must clearly define the task.
The last step of delegation is evaluation. The nurse should see that the task was documented, and should evaluate the client and outcome.
