Issue Areas/Comments
I feel this drug should remain in the control of anesthesia experts. I work in a rural setting, where nurses must be able to work in many areas. However, the arena of airway management of the sedated patient must be handled by a person trained and experienced in crisis intervention. Anesthestists are best trained for this procedure. Anything less is substandard care.
