Q.png

Do RNs administer conscious sedation in your ASC? If yes, do you have a circulating RN in the room?

Yes, we do for pain injections. Our team that is providing care for the injection procedures does the procedure setup and "circulating" duties. We have one RN who is assigned to the conscious sedation. In addition, our radiological technician also assists in the procedure setup and medication setup with the room RN.
