  • Record post-anesthetic visits, including at least one (1) note describing the presence or absence of anesthesia related complications within forty eight (48) hours of the procedure. While the number of visits will be determined by the status of the patient in relation to the procedure performed and the anesthetic administered, a visit should be made early in the postoperative period.

The CRNA can rightfully and legally decline to administer an anesthetic to a patient in this category without repercussion. The choice of anesthetic should be discussed with the operating surgeon.
  • Check all equipment and agents to be used in the administration of the anesthetic to be sure it is in safe working order. Report all malfunctioning equipment to the Head, Anesthesiology Department or Chief Nurse Anesthetist.
  • Check all resuscitative equipment prior to the beginning of the first (1st) surgery of the day. Any malfunctioning or missing equipment shall be reported to the Head, Anesthesiology Department or Chief Nurse Anesthetist immediately.
  • Provide care appropriate to the age of the patients served. Interpret data about the patient's status in order to identify each patient's age specific needs and provide the care needed by the patient group including neonate, pediatric, adolescent and geriatric patients, such as interpreting nonverbal communication, safety practices and medication dosing of Neonates/Pediatrics; enlisting Adolescent patients in treatment, safety and security practices; and recognizing physical limitations, psychosocial needs, age related conditions, safety and medication precautions for geriatrics.
