News and Views for Healthcare Accreditation Professionals

Well folks, the world has changed.  After many discussions (or arguments) it has now happened:
TJC has now cited a hospital under an IMMEDIATE THREAT (and SITUATION DECISION) when a nurse administers agents of deep sedation.  The nurse was at the head of the table, administering the anesthesia agent and monitoring the agent.  The only other person in the room was the physician who was performing the procedure.  Hope everyone will stop arguing about this and just do the right thing.
