on 14 Aug Dr. Kates asked about the use of monitoring in a fast track
facility for conscious sedation. JCAHO has been looking at sedation and
documentation and how it conforms to unit policies. If policies call for
monitoring and recovery paremeters for conscious sedation, then possibly we
are putting ourselves at risk in not following the current guidelines of our
facilities as well as current standards of practice issues.
