Dinged, as in, your patient dies after you perform a procedure on them and it's recorded as a surgical death, or what have you. I know that this SERIOUSLY affects the surgical and cardiothoracic surgery teams where I work (to the point of affecting patient care, but that's a whole other story). I know it also impacts interventional cardiology too. Does it affect CRNAs at all? Most people I talk to at work don't think so, but I thought I'd ask. I really don't want to put myself into a field where I'd be more concerned about making my numbers look good than taking care of a risky patient . . . good thing this doesn't apply to ICU nurses, eh?
