Does anybody have a policy in their institution regarding narcotics at the bedside in the PACU? Do you waste the narcs each time you give one dose? Do you leave your narcotics at the bedside? Have you ever had issues with JAHCO regarding this?

Hairjm, how many theaters do you have, and what kind of cases do you get? You should have at least 1 staff member on duty for each theater running, if you are dealing with anaesthetized patients. Does your hospital have a policy that the anaesthesia provider wakes the patient up before transfer to the PACU?
