Published: May 22, 2017

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. Do you require both a monitoring RN and a circulating RN for nurse-monitored sedation cases at your facility? Tell us in this week's InstaPoll.
