|Keep physician anesthesiologists in Veterans' operating rooms|
The VA has released its new Advanced Practice Registered Nurse handbook that would mandate the elimination of Physician Anesthesiologist supervision of Nurse Anesthetists in the operating room. The 60 day comment period has ended, and we are awaiting further word from the VA as to how they will proceed. The majority of comments received were in favor of maintaining physician involvement in the delivery of anestheisa.
Thank you ALL for your comments!
