Who is accountable for patient ambulation delegated to the nursing assistant?

Registered nurse

Explanation

•Even though tasks may be delegated to other nursing personnel, the RN is still legally accountable for all nursing care tasks.

•As the nurse, you may selectively delegate according to the scope of practice and the level of care required for your patients, but you are responsible for following up to be sure the care was provided and you are responsible for the outcome.
