An LPN works on an adult medical/surgical unit and has been pulled to work on the burn unit, which cares for patients of all ages. What should he do?
He should take the assignment, but explain the situation to the charge nurse and ask for a quick orientation before starting.
He should take the assignment, but make it clear he will only care for adult patients.
He should take the assignment, but ask to be paired with a more experienced LPN.
He should refuse to take the assignment, as caring for infant and child population is not within his scope of practice.
