During the webinar, attendees will learn the CMS standards on pre-anesthesia evaluations, post-anesthesia evaluation and anesthesia services, including the required hospital anesthesia policies.
Deep sedation is considered anesthesia, so these standards can affect care provided in places like the emergency department, radiology, GI lab, pain clinic or any other place Propofol or its like is provided.
CMS expects hospitals to develop policies and procedures that address the clinical circumstances under which medications are considered anesthesia and to specify the qualifications of the practitioners who can administer them. Our expert will explain each of the recent four changes and when and why the changes were made.
