Deep Sedation

The Sedation/Analgesia (“Conscious Sedation”) Policy
The Sedation/Analgesia Policy was amended to delete the section on Deep Sedation.  Deep Sedation has been reclassified by CMS as “Anesthesia.”  Physicians and Dentists performing Deep Sedation must be credentialed specifically to perform deep sedation by their Chief of Service and maintain standards of care and documentation that are equivalent to the Department of Anesthesiology standards.  (Policy # A2-307)
