Hi everyone! I am helping to set up procedure and policy for my facility. I work at an outpatient MDs office that only does EGDs and Colonoscopies, this office is under the auspices of a major medical center. How long do you document vital signs post procedure, generally how long do you keep the patient? 99% patients are receiving Propofol.

In our endoscopy dept, we recover pts than  have recieved propofol from anesthesiologists.  Our policy: vitals every 5 minutes times 3.   Then every 15minutes until discharge criteria is met.  (same protocal  after conscious sedation).
