From a legal perspective, you should take a regular look at your job descriptions to ensure that duties align with your organization's policies and procedures, and meet the standard of care. Distribute the finalized version to your nursing staff. If, as a result of a change in the job description, there are new competencies which must be demonstrated, they must be done at this time so that nurses are practicing within the standard of care that is established by the newly implemented job description.

Ask each staff member to sign a letter acknowledging and committing to adhere to the updated standard and place a copy in the employee's file.
