|PART 11||TEXAS BOARD OF NURSING|
|CHAPTER 224||DELEGATION OF NURSING TASKS BY REGISTERED PROFESSIONAL NURSES TO UNLICENSED PERSONNEL FOR CLIENTS WITH ACUTE CONDITIONS OR IN ACUTE CARE ENVIRONMENTS|
|RULE §224.11||Application of Other Laws and Regulations|
BNE §217.11(1) of this title (relating to Standards of Professional Nursing Practice) requires RNs to know and conform to all laws and regulations affecting their area of practice. The RN delegating tasks to an unlicensed person should be aware that, in addition to this chapter, various laws and regulations may apply to, including but not limited to, laws and regulations governing home and community support services agencies, Medicare and Medicaid regulations, and Medication Aide regulations. In situations where a RN's practice is governed by multiple laws and regulations that impose different requirements, the RN must comply with them all and if inconsistent, the most restrictive requirement(s) governs. For example, if one regulation requires an RN to make a supervisory visit every 14 days and another leaves it to the RN's professional judgment, the RN would have to visit at least every 14 days or more frequently, if that is what the RN's professional judgment indicated.
