I'm considering hiring CRNA's to work per diem at multiple northern California surgery centers. I've been perusing the internet to educate myself about CRNA's. I just had a few questions:
The MD's at our surgery centers want propofol sedation for their cases (colonoscopies, pain management and plastic surgery). There is no general anesthesia involved. Would CRNA's be interested in doing this work? (an anesthesiologist has been doing the work for the past 2 years).
What about income? We were thinking of offering $85-125 per hr. The day starts at 8am and usually finishes around 5pm. There is a 60-90 minute lunch. There are no weekends, holidays, or call. It would start at 2 days per week guaranteed and possibly progress to 4 or 5.
What about malpractice? What's the cost of CRNA malpractice insurance
in CA? Do CRNA's in the locums market carry their own insurance?
Finally, where's the best place to post jobs or find qualified CRNA's?
Thanks in advance for your answers. If you have any other tips, please do not hesitate to offer them. You can post answers or feel free to email me directly at the email listed with my profile.
