Am a little frustrated here. A few of us in our dept do vcug's. if the child needs sedation, then the primary doctor must supply us with a order. They never come with sedation orders!! I'm now will start turning them away or do it without sedation. It usually takes Dr.s office 1 hour to getorder faxed to us. Last time it took 3 hours! And the doctor still would not give us a order. Dr. felt uncomfortable ordering sedation with us. Did not feel there was anyone to monitor the pt. Hello, we have a policy set up and I am a RN. Pt would have been monitored throughout the procedure.
This doctor has ordered sedation with us before, I guess she just forget we had nurses over here!
Pt waited forever. Was forced to try it without. I got kicked in the boob. She's coming back next week and I'm off that day!!!!
