Taking the Intimidation Out of RN Delegation for Private Duty and PAS
If you own a PAS in Texas, and you’re not yet
providing RN Delegation as a specialty program, then you could be doing your clients a dis-service, or unknowingly breaking the rules.
- TAHC&H Winter Conference 2022 | Dallas | Recorded for On-Demand Access
- Presentation Date | February 24, 2022
Program Description: Do you ever worry that your caregivers could be “crossing the line” when
it comes to assistance with self-administration of certain medications? Do your staff really provide “hand-over-hand” assistance with eye drops
and inhalers? What about those clients who need their oral medications crushed or put in food? If you own a PAS in Texas, and you’re not yet
providing RN Delegation as a specialty program, then you could be doing your clients a dis-service, or unknowingly breaking the rules. Our
primary goal in PAS is make the lives of our clients and their families simpler. So, if we “draw the line” at those much-needed tasks that
must be delegated, then are we really giving them the best service we can?

Reporting of Perceived Bias
Bias, as defined by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation (ANCC COA/LSNA) is the “tendency or inclination to cause partiality, favoritism, or influence.”
Commercial bias may occur when a CNE activity promotes one or more product(s) (drugs, devices, services, software, hardware, etc.). This definition is not all inclusive and participants may use
their own interpretation in deciding if a presentation is biased. The ANCC COA is interested in the opinions and perceptions of participants at approved CNE activities, especially in the presence
of actual or perceived bias in continuing education. Therefore, ANCC invites participants to access their “ANCC Accreditation Feedback Line” to report any noted bias or conflict of interest in the
education activity. The toll free number is 1(866) 262-9730.
