What are sedation standards?
Sedation standards are principles or processes that, in the opinion of recognized experts, accrediting bodies, or specialty organizations, are essential components of patient care. The degree of care an ordinary, reasonable, and prudent person would exercise in given circumstances. In legal terms, it is how similarly qualified practitioners would manage the patient’s care under the same or similar circumstances. In a practical sense for sedation, standard of care does not vary according to the type of practitioner, or the type of facility that provides the care.
