The Registered Nurse is accountable for the performance of patient care according to the behaviors and responsibilities as outlined in this statement. The registered nurse (RN) demonstrates key behaviors in the areas of care delivery, leadership, collaboration, and professional growth. Care delivery includes assessing status, identifying problems, developing and implementing a plan of care through the delivery and delegation of care, evaluating care delivery, promoting patient/family education and involving the patient /family and other members of the health care team in planning and implementation to meet expected healthcare outcomes. Care is delivered, viewing the person as a whole being, including but not limited to physiological, psychological and spiritual aspects.
Consideration of the individual's age, developmental level, learning ability, health status and belief system are integral in care delivery. Leadership is evidenced as RNs influence individuals or groups to accomplish goals through guiding, directing, teaching, coaching and motivating others. Communication and collaboration with patients, families, physicians and other health care professionals/disciplines is essential in delivering care. It is evidenced in multidisciplinary care planning, problem solving etc. Professional growth is essential in providing care, as the RN shares knowledge, gains knowledge and contributes to knowledge through participation in formal and informal continuing education programs and research. The RN operates within the framework of the Mission, Vision, and Values of Holy Cross Hospital.
