Goal

To reduce risks and negative outcomes associated with procedural sedation through the implementation of a Procedural Sedation Policy.

Brief Description

A Procedural Sedation Policy has been developed for front-line staff (e.g., nurses, respiratory therapists, physicians). It outlines all equipment, supplies, competencies, and accountability required for caring for adult patients receiving procedural sedation. Formal educational content has been developed; however, the implementation and sustainability of the policy must still be determined.
