We work alone on sat. Sun. Our policy and procedure says we follow aspan guidelines. Our second nurse is the " or scrub" but they leave after the surgery is over of course. The other nurses in my unit say that " well if you think your pts in trouble, you could always ask someone to stay with you" meaning anesthesia md. But my feeling is that anything could happen to anyone at anytime and why should pts on the weekend be given a lesser standard of care?
