Taking a client\ s vital signs-2. documenting a client\ s oral intake-3. performing a blood glucose check-rationale: registered nurses are responsible for all phases of the nursing process. these responsibilities include assessing a clients pain and evaluating a clients response to treatment. a nurse may delegate tasks such as taking vital signs, documenting intake and output, and performing blood glucose checks if she follows the five rights of delegation. the five rights of delegation include: right task (the task is within the delegates scope of practice), right person (the person is competent to perform the task), right communication (the nurse gives the right directions to complete the task), right feedback (the nurse works collaboratively with the delegate), and right follow-up (the nurse follows-up on the task after it has been completed).client needs category: safe, effective care environmentclient needs subcategory: management of carecognitive level: analysisreference: craven, r.f., and hirnle, c.j. fundamentals of nursing: human health and function, 5th ed. philadelphia: lippincott williams & wilkins, 2007, p. 116.
