1. We are an ASC that does GI Endoscopy. We would like to get our patients
    off of the carts and into recliners for their recovery. We are meeting resistance from the Dr.s. Does anyone else do this? Are there any studies that contraindicate this practice?

    We get most of our patients up into recliners after the procedure. It would be contraindicated depending on LOC, vital signs and nurse discretion. The majority of our anesthesia cases remain on stretchers also.
