2023-02-28 5:00 pm 2023-02-28 7:30 pm America/New_York Responding to an Unsafe Patient Assignment: Legal, Moral, and Practical Implications http://www.massnurses.org/news-and-events/events/p/event/12525 MNA MNA donotreply@massnurses.org

Patient assignments are becoming more and more challenging and unfortunately they are often unsafe. This program will provide nurses with the advocacy skills and the communication strategies to respond when you hear “Just do your best” and your nursing judgement determines you cannot safely meet the needs of the patient. Discussion topics will include: patient abandonment, mandatory overtime and assuming an assignment under duress or objection. Documentation of unsafe assignments and mandatory overtime will be explored. The program will explain who should accept the liability and responsibility for an unsafe assignment.
