We also do let M.A.s do anything with central lines. They can do a butterfly lab draw when competency is signed.
I’m curious about this question as I have been asked by Senior Leadership if I can replace a RN that is leaving with a MA? I have been searching the forums for staffing in clinics.
Have you been asked the same question? Can a MA do the work RNs are doing?
