I'm glad there is a policy in hand that clearly defines who can and cannot give propofol.
A long time ago, conscious sedation consisted of giving some versed/valium, a little bit of narcotics, one nurse to monitor the patient, the other to help with the procedure.
During a "conscious sedation bronch", the nurse I was working with was extremely new at giving the meds, very uncertain and the doctor made her nervous. He asked for 2mg of Valium(no Versed then) and she gave 2 ml, which was 10 mg! This patient being a COPD'er, he instantly stopped breathing(I'm sure that most of us would have anyway) and suddenly, in a little tiny "local" room, which wasn't set up for suction, Administering O2 and the like, we have a respiratory arrest! The doc is screaming at the nurse, who is in tears and I'm calling overhead for a crash cart to be brought to the room. I actually remember hearing someone else on the overhead speaker saying, "Did she just call a code for her room?" and my instant response back confirming that WE HAD A CODE situation.
What a freaking mess that was!
The room had previously been a small "junk" room. It had been cleared out to be used for LOCAL cases only. Somehow the doc had pressured the coordinators to get his bronch moved in there, a patient who was too ill to be done in that room.
Luckily for the patient, getting him to the PACU and bagging him for a bit was all it took. Bronchs were never again done in that room, suction and O2 were installed, the nurse quit the next day and the doctor went along with his life...
But that was CS in the 1980's.
I wouldn't dream of pushing propofol instead of an anesthesia professional. I have given propofol while assisting an anesthesia professional.
