IS IT SAFE TO TEACH & DELEGATE CARE TASKS TO NON NHS STAFF?
Some sources consider it inappropriate for C.C.Ns to assume responsibility for the training of non-nursing support workers as “in doing so jeopardise their professional position”. Murphy (2001) cited in The Textbook of Community Children’s Nursing (2005) The Health Select Committee’s first report into children & young people was published in 1997.
The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) state: “you may be expected to delegate care delivery to others who are not registered nurses or midwives. Such delegation must not compromise existing care but must be directed to meeting the needs of and serving the interests of patients and clients. You remain accountable for the appropriateness of the delegation and for ensuring the person who does the work is able to do it and that adequate supervision and support is provided”. (NMC 2002)
