The elevator to the procedure area is right beside the rooms. They allow us to either push the patient down in a wheelchair or their bed, the choice is ours or the patients, they will accept either. Sometimes I feel like its a control issue. I come in and say, "Hey, it's time to go", and they say, "I need to poop" or "I didn't finish eating yet", or "I want a new gown first and new bedding on this bed". Since we don't know exactly when they will be called, I cant make sure the patient has pain medications, so I usually have to give those too.
I am not blaming the procedure area, they are doing us a favor by squeezing the patients in.
