Moderate Sedation: Complying with Accreditation and Regulatory Requirements
Program Overview:

A patients response to sedation is not always predictable; therefore, it is imperative that healthcare providers who administer moderate sedation study the evidence-based practices and required standards and regulations essential in providing safe, effective patient care.

Learning Objective:To help facilities comply with new CMS Requirements and Accreditation Standards (The Joint Commission, AAAHC, AAAASF, DNV/NIAHO) as they apply to healthcare professionals who administer sedation.

Each year, millions of procedures using moderate sedation are performed in ambulatory, ancillary, or acute care settings by cliniciansother than anesthesia professionals. While many of these procedures may seem low risk, clinicians who are not properly trained may be putting patients at risk for unintended complications or medical errors.


Clinicians must be able to clearly distinguish between moderate sedation and the more dangerous states of deep sedation and general anesthesia; as well as determine the potential complex interactions between the agents used, a patients health, and drug sensitivities, so that they can act quickly to respond to the many complications that may occur.
