Where to stand during induction

  1. Hi fellow OR nurses!
    Do you make a point to stand on a specific side of the patient during induction? Have your anesthesiologists asked you to stand somewhere specific - right or left side?

    usually the patient's right side. But if the patient has an IV on that side and the anesthesiologist is pushing meds there, I will just go to the other side to assist if needed.
