Scenario: You currently work on a med-surgical unit in a medium-size hospital. The usual nurse-to-patient ratio is 1:5, which you feel is a heavy, but manageable,

patient load. You arrive for your 7A to 7P shift and are told that, due to several RNs calling in sick with the flu, you will need to take nine patients. You question

if additional staff is available from another unit, and you are told that administration is attempting to get help for the unit, but that none is available at this

time. You then state, I will take the assignment, but I must first claim Safe Harbor.

Overview: Safe Harbor
Due to staffing shortages and the unpredictability of hospital needs, nurses are sometimes asked to take on assignments outside their normal routines.  As a healthcare

professional, you must understand your options when asked to take on such assignments, the risks associated with accepting some assignments, and the protections

afforded you by the law.  Reflect upon your learning about the Safe Harbor protection as well as any experiences you have had in this realm.  Then follow the

instructions to download and complete Safe Harbor forms based upon a fictitious scenario.
Refer to your course readings and lectures as you complete the assignment.
