The author points out how some nurses potentially abuse the power of delegation. I agree it occurs, but it has never been my practice. I have been a nurse for several years, but have worked as a home health aide AND as a CNA, well before that. Some nurses, perhaps, feel that they are above doing the “grunt work” that CNA do. I have never understood this line of thought. And having worked as a CNA, while going to school to become an RN; I never will. I know the incredible value of a CNA. I can show my respect by working with them as part of a team, not by treating them as a subordinate.
Never delegate out of sheer personal convenience.
