Hello all!I work in endoscopy. A question came up during a staff meeting about the Aldrete score.As I understand it, the Aldrete score is used to asses the pt after sedation or a procedure. This score is used as a post-procedure tool as a way of determining criteria for discharge. Our unit director is saying that we will now have to preform an Aldrete score pre-procedure, during the initial nursing admission. Myself, along with several other nurses, found this to be strange.Do any of you nurses who work OR, endo, OPS, or any other area where sedation is given preform and Aldrete score before the actual procedure???Thanks in advance for you time!
