With the recent transition towards a single mandate organization, the CRNS Council has made the decision to discontinue the use of position statements. Thus, updated resources are being provided in replacement of previous position statements.
The 24 Hour RN Coverage in Special-Care Homes resource document will replace the 24 Hour Registered Nurse Coverage position statement. It is recognized that RNs are one health care provider within the larger health system, and there are many factors that lead to better outcomes for residents. This resource provides an at-a-glace connection to standards, competencies, ethical responsibilities and evidence for RNs practising in special-care homes.
Please review this document and consider how it may relate to your practice.
