The NMC's The Code (2015) states that as nurses we must "Be accountable for your decisions to delegate tasks and duties to other people"
The NMC have recently released a video on delegation - VIEW HERE
The video states that "most of the time, we remain accountable for the decisions made by the people we delegate to" however the video goes on to explain that this should not deter us from delegating. As nurses we are simply unable to do everything ourselves, therefore we must know how to effectively and safely delegate.
Barrow and Sharma (2020) identify the five rights of delegation:
- Right task
- Right circumstance
- Right person
- Right supervision
- Right direction and communication
- Why is it important that nurses delegate?
- What can stop nurses from delegating?
- What are the challenges to safe and effective delegation? And what steps can we take to ensure delegation is safe and effective?
- What is the right level of direction / supervision when delegating ?
- How do we ensure we get delegation right when we are working in high pressured or challenging circumstances?
- When and how should we document our decision making around delegation?
