If so, what Board Rule was violated? 5.How should you have responded (from a legal/patient safety/license protection perspective)in response to each of these statements? a) “You will get a two-hour orientation.” - This orientation needs to be done by a trained preceptor and must be properly documented that the training reviewed is fully understood and be signed by both nurses. b)“The monitor tech will be responsible for reading the strips.”-How much actual training do the monitor techs have at reading these strips? Are these monitor techs on the same floor as I am so that I can be easily notified if there is something wrong? c) “You need to be a team player or you may suffer employment consequences.” - Sec. 301.413.
