You have been asked to investigate a new procedure that physicians
When investigating a new procedure that physicians would like nurses to adopt in the hospital, it is important to assess if it falls within the scope of practice for registered nurses. The first step I would take is to review relevant documents such as state boards and nursing regulations. These documents will provide information on what is considered within the scope of practice for registered nurses. After analyzing this information, I would look into any additional training that may be required before implementing the new procedure. This could include gaining certifications or completing courses in specific areas. If needed, I would consult with additional knowledgeable resources such as practicing physicians or seasoned nurses who have experience with similar procedures.
I would then present my findings to both physicians and fellow nurses through various channels such as meetings, emails, or even video conferences if necessary. During these conversations, I believe it’s essential that all parties feel comfortable having an open dialogue about potential risks associated with implementing the new procedure and ways we can work together to ensure safety of our patients during implementation phase. It is also important for everyone involved to recognize the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration when introducing any new process into a healthcare setting; thus clear communication and understanding between different departments should be established beforehand.
Lastly, once everyone has agreed upon adoption of this new procedure I suggest conducting continual assessments throughout its implementation phase by monitoring outcomes, collecting feedback from staff members who are engaging in said activities daily (such as performance reviews polls etc.), and making sure any changes/modifications needed are addressed in a timely manner so that patient care remains optimal at all times .
