Standardized Procedures in California

Standardized procedures refer to defined policies and procedures that have been formulated by the health systems to guide the performance of standardized functions. The organization health systems include the office of the physicians and the clinics.  Within the business operations and professional code, the standardized procedures are authorized especially if it is the medical institution. Within the California code of regulation, standardize procedures have been clarified under the nursing and practice act section 2725. These are legal mechanisms that nurse practitioners have to use when performing their functions. Most standardizes procedures are developed collaboratively by different administrations within the organized healthcare system where they are being used. Interdisciplinary collaboration between the nurses and medical practitioners allows the development and approval and accountability on different levels of activities. Healthcare facilities and officers of the physicians well make use of the standardized procedures. Organized health care systems perform their functions based on standardized incidence, and a registered nurse have to follow conditions that are specified in the healthcare systems. The standardized procedures, therefore, provide systems that have satisfactory evidence that a nurse must meet (Board Of Registered Nursing, 1998). A nurse practitioner in California can use standardized procedures in many ways. When they are registered as nurses, they have to perform standard procedures under conditions that are specified by the healthcare system. Also, they have to give services that can satisfactorily justify the practices of a nurse. A nurse practitioner is one who possesses additional preparation techniques and skills to perform a physical diagnosis. Psychosocial assessment is a procedure that required primary health as prescribed by the standard education. Registration nurses board set additional other standards for education for the nurse practitioners to meet to hold a degree or a certification of a nurse practitioner. Those who meet the standards are certified and are prepared to provide care within the primary health care unit.
