the following criteria:
(1) the client is in an independent living environment;
(2) the client, if 16 or older, or client's responsible
adult is willing and able to participate in decisions about the overall
management of the client's health care; and
(3) the task is for a stable, predictable condition
as defined by §225.4 of this title (relating to Definitions).
(b) If the situation does not meet the above criteria
in subsection (a) of this section, any delegation of nursing tasks
by the RN to an unlicensed person must comply with Chapter 224 of
this title (relating to Delegation of Tasks Relating to Acute Conditions
or Settings Other Than Independent Living Environments).
(c) Should a client develop an acute condition that
is unstable or unpredictable, this chapter may still be applicable
to tasks that relate solely to the client's stable and predictable
condition(s) and not to the acute condition(s).
