Ok, all you wonderful Radiology nurses. Being a department of ONE, I need some input.
I am primarily involved in CT and US guided interventional procedures. We ONLY get H & P's on patients have procedural sedation. QUESTION IS: Do you guys get H & P's for patients receiving LOCAL anesthesia only? I am trying to look through JCAHO and CMS guidelines to try and find my answer, but am having NO luck.
If you would, please share your thoughts and any documentation you may have.
