We were just told that LPN's can't admit or assess patients-that an RN must assess the LPN's patient at least once a shift. Supposedly this is a state regulation. The way I was taught is that an RN has to see the patient in a 24 hour period. So if an LPN has the patient on days, an RN must have the patient at night. I need to hear opinions on this, especially from Florida nurses(where I'm working as a traveler). Thanks.
