Nearly two-thirds (65%) of the 298 respondents to last week's InstaPoll require both a monitoring RN and a circulating RN for nurse-monitored sedation cases. AORN recommends that there be 2 perioperative RNs assigned to care for the patient if the patient is receiving moderate sedation — one to administer sedation and monitor the patient, and one to perform the circulating role.

  • 2 (1 circulating and 1 monitoring) 66%
