Section 1: South Dakota IV Legal
It is imperative that all nurses understand the rules and regulations set forth by the state that governs the nurse’s practice. Each state has rules and regulations that differ from one another, therefore it is necessary for each nurse to know the specific state(s) in which he or she practices; guidelines, rules and laws. The following information guides facilities, organizations, and all licensed nurses regarding the board’s guidelines pertaining to infusion therapy practices. This course will guide you through the South Dakota State Board of Nursing (BON) website to all documents that impact the provision of infusion therapies by nurses. It is always recommended that the Board’s website be checked independently as any state board can append, amend and change the rules and regulations that nurses are expected to follow.
Upon completion of this course the participant will be able to:
1. Name 3 specific IV related tasks the South Dakota BON states may not be performed by licensed practical nurses.
2. Identify the role of the registered nurse and in the performance of IV Therapy.
3. Discuss principles of delegation.
