    Wow! Thanks for all the responses! This situation is so convoluted because it's not our office's "patient". She's just having surgery at our facility. She hasn't even been at our office yet. I even question the correctness of the H&P that was faxed over. The anesthesiologist said there are anesthetic meds that can be "changed up". This isn't over by far, and more conversations need to take place for sure! Monday is going to be an interesting day And I'm sure there's going to be some upset people. Thanks again everyone!!!!!

    I am an OR nurse for a plastic surgeon.  I have also worked in an ambulatory surgery center for 5 years in the OR, preop and PACU . I recognize that MH is always a concern during/after surgery but have never had a patient experience this on my watch.  Like I said, I am now an OR nurse for a plastic surgeon.  The MD I work for has allowed another MD-plastic surgeon- to use our surgery suite for a 7 hour case.  When reading over the H&P, the patient has Central Core Myopathy with risk for MH.  I am really upset because my MD is expecting me to be working the OR for this case.  I don't want to work this case (in fact, I really don't want to be involved with this other MD at all-and have voiced that to my boss).  I feel that this person SHOULD NOT have this surgery and SHOULD NOT have it in a office surgical suite envirnoment (even though we are completely certified, have a MH cart and crash cart, etc). I feel that if the pt. wants this surgery that bad...it should be done in a hospital OR.  Am I justified in feeling this way?  I'm feeling so much pressure for so many reasons (i.e. safety, job, office staff).  Please offer experience,advise, suggestions !!!!
