Florida dentistry board issues decision in anesthesiology turf battle
from Tampa Bay Business Journal
The Florida Board of Dentistry has decided against expanding the scope of practice for certified registered nurse anesthetists. Ruling unanimously, the board prohibited CRNAs from sedating patients to a level deeper than the sedation permit held by the dentist, according to a written release. Florida law requires a physician or dentist to administer or supervise this kind of sedation.
