Hi, my name is Jackie Adames I work for a new pain management practice but we are lacking policies and procedures? I was wondering if someone as a professional courtesy would be willing to share these with me from your office? I'd be forever grateful.
My email is in profile.
Or would you know where I could purchase some?
the procedures we will be doing are Lumbar, caudal ESI's, rhizotomies, facet blocks, ablations, periperal nerve blocks, etc.....
This is all so new to me since I've been a Gastroenterology nurse since 2000 right out of nursing school.
If you e-mail me and would like to speak to me personally I'll give you my contact no.

Wow! I am in the same predicament. I work for a large pain practice and was asked to put together a policy and procedure manual as well as an employee manual
. It looks like a project that I was not given enough time for. If Maggie or Jackie would be open to it, I would truly, truly appreciate it if you would please share your info with me as well; it would mean a lot to me.
