Our hospital is in the process of standardizing the credentialing
requirements for physicians that provide moderate and deep sedation. We currently have prerequisites that are department specific but there is
no uniform, system wide stipulation. In preparation for the start of our
meetings, would anyone on the list be willing to share the requirements
at your institution? are Pediatric ED physicians and Intensivists
"automatically" credentialed? do you have specific course attendance or
certification (i.e. PALS) provisions?
I would appreciate any and all input regarding this matter.
