Oppose the Governors Budget Proposal to Lower NY's Safe Anesthesia Standards

16 Feb 2018 1:17 PM | Babette Grey (Administrator)

Governor Cuomo's budget proposal includes a provision that would remove the physician supervision requirement for Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) and replace it with a poorly defined collaborative agreement.

This proposal would lower the standard of care for the administration of anesthesia and put New York's patients at increased risk.

Additionally, the proposal will grant up to 1,240 nurse anesthetists full prescribing authority upon obtaining a vaguely described "certificate," at a time when New York State is combating prescription drug and opioid abuse. This will exacerbate the crisis.

Email your state Assembly member and Senator to tell them to remove PART H in the budget bill S.7507/A.9507.
