As the chief nurse anesthetist for a free-standing ambulatory surgery, I believe that the administration of Propofol should be done only by trained anesthesia providers as stated by our institution's policy. This policy has been discussed in great detail with our senior vice president of clinical services, attending anesthesiologist, nurse manager, staff nurses, performance improvement and risk management departments, and all agree that this policy has the best interest for patient safety.
