The registered professional nurse who monitors or supervises
the facility staff members authorized to administer medication or
perform health maintenance tasks may withdraw authorization for a
facility staff member if the nurse determines that the facility
staff member is not performing medication administration or health
maintenance tasks in accordance with the training and written
instructions. The withdrawal of the authorization shall be
documented and relayed to the facility and the department in order
to remove the facility staff member from the list of authorized
individuals. The department shall maintain a list of the names of
persons whose authorization to administer medication or perform
health maintenance tasks has been withdrawn, and the reasons for
withdrawal of authorization. The list may be accessed by
registered professional nurses or facilities.
