How many do you do in a day?
Quote from ajaxgirl1 nurse who circulates, 1 surg tech or nurse to set up the table, if using laser one surg tech or nurse to run itHow many nurses in the room?
Quote from ajaxgirlRarely done under local unless someone's insurance company won't pay for procedure done in office. If in house patient needs local cysto, traveling cart used by doc and floor nurse except in unusual circumstances. CRNA either does MAC, spinal, or general.Mostly done under local? If not, do you have an anesthetist? RNs wouldn't do any sedation as they sometimes do in endoscopy units, correct?
Quote from ajaxgirlStandard PACU stay if asleep, directly back to floor if unusual circumstances require local in OR. Directly to post-op unit if local from home until able to void then discharged.How long are patients monitored after? Do they go straight back to day surgery?
Quote from ajaxgirlPretty much every single patient has an IV.Do they have IV's?
