Northwest Community Hospital has adopted a new policy for all non-anesthesiologist physicians who administer or supervise administration of sedative and analgesic medications to establish moderate sedation.
Maintenance in ACLS, NRP or PALS certification as well as completion of a computer based training course will be required for this privilege no later than Oct. 15, 2013. ACLS classes are offered through the NCH Learning Center.
To register for an NCH class, please call 847.618.7400. Proof of an up-to-date BLS CPR card is required. If physicians should have any questions, please contact Pat Reynolds or Lori Consoer in Medical Staff Services at 847.618.5663.
