    RN Procedural Sedation Rules


     

     

    Relevant Text: 

    It is the expectation of the New Hampshire Board of Nursing that administration of medications classified as anesthetics for the purpose of sedation, and analgesia requires special attention. The licensed nurse must decline to administer medications classified as anesthetics or other medications if the nurse perceives the administration would be unsafe under the circumstances or if the medication is restricted by manufacturer guidelines, including black box warning (such as is seen with Propofol) or outside the scope of practice of the licensed nurse.

    The nurse should be cognizant of drugs that have the potential for rapid, profound changes in sedative/anesthetic depth and the lack of antagonist medications and drugs that contain manufacturer's warnings (black box) limiting administration to persons trained in general anesthesia, should receive care consistent with that required for deep sedation.
