A CRNA is supervised by an anesthesiologist, but that doesn't mean the MD has to be in the room with the CRNA the whole time. An RN supervises the work of a CNA, but that doesn't mean the RN has to be in the room every time the CNA is getting vitals. You just have to make sure the LVN followed protocols and documented correctly.
If it were the way you are describing, they wouldn't even hire LVN's because it would be doubling up resources (might as well only hire RN's) and not saving them any money!
