Nerve block policy
Fellow section members,
I'm an ultrasound fellow who is currently working with my fellowship director to implement a formal policy in our Emergency Department so we can begin to perform ultrasound-guided proximal and distal nerve blocks on a more consistent basis. I am currently looking for any available consensus statements regarding this matter, and am having a hard time. ACEPs ultrasound policy does not seem to specifically address this issue. I wanted to ask if any section members have an established protocol or policy in their emergency department and can assist in giving me a point of reference to start. Thank you!
