The charge nurse on an antepartal unit is making staffing assignments for the day. There is a registered nurse (RN), licensed practical nurse (LPN), and an unlicensed assistive personnel (UAP) to care for 15 clients. The nurse should assign which of the following clients to the LPN?
1. A newly admitted G5 P2 Ab 2 with second trimester bleeding, reportedly currently saturating one to two pads in 12 hours.
2. A 22-year-old G2 P1 with urinary retention who is being catheterized with an intermittent in and out every 4 to 6 hours PRN while awaiting urine cultures to be returned.
3. A G4 P2 with a twin pregnancy who was admitted in preterm labor and is now able to ambulate two to three times daily and having no contractions.
4. A 30-year-old G4 P0 who was admitted with sickle cell crisis currently receiving blood and pain medication.
The 22-year-old G2 with urinary retention and needing to be I & O catheterized by a health care provider can be cared for by the LPN. There is nothing else indicating a need for a higher level of care. The newly admitted G5 client is in need of an admission assessment and assessment of fetal well-being and bleeding that will need to be done by an RN. The G4 P2 with a twin pregnancy who has been in preterm labor can be cared for by a UAP since there is no active labor and no indication of distress in the fetuses. The client in sickle cell crisis requires a high level of care to be provided by an RN.
