So,
I work for a small group that covers multiple hospitals and we do LESI's at a few of the sites. Most of the others will do sedation and the epidural while being the only CRNA in house. I have done it both with and without sedation but I am worried that I am putting myself at increased liability. Recently I have decided to only do these without sedation and now some patients ask to be rescheduled to one of the "sedation" providers. Does anyone have any literature that supports a solo provider in doing epidural steroids and the sedation at the same time or any literature that shows the liability so that I can explain my point to the staff. They are very backwoods and backwards there so I need a way to show them that it's not just my opinion. Thanks!
