Jeanne Blum, RN, is a nurse on a LDRP unit. Recently, the policy and 

procedures manual for Jeanne’s unit included the premature rupturing of membranes of a laboring patient 

as a practice acceptable for nurses to perform. Jeanne 

and some of her coworkers shared their concern over 

lunch about this new responsibility.They felt uncomfortable with the possibility of cord prolapse and 

other potential medical complications resulting from 

this practice. Jeanne gathered data from her state and 

many others states and noted that her hospital was 

not in compliance with her professional organization

practice standards. Jeanne shared this information with her coworkers. She volunteered to contact the 

state board of nursing on their behalf to request a 

declaratory statement on the nurse’s role in the initiation of premature rupturing of uterine membranes. 

Her state board’s clinical practice committee 

reviewed her request for a declaratory statement and 

gathered information from other states. A formal 

declaratory statement was drafted by the board and 

made it available on its Web site. A letter from the 

board was sent to Jeanne’s institution, informing it of 

the declaratory statement, which stated that the task 

nurses were requested to perform was beyond their 

scope of practice based on the Nurse Practice Act.
