New Anesthesia Provider May Threaten Operating Room Safety
Date:2/24/2009

62 nurses have graduated from the program and 90 percent of those have stayed in the Maryland area for employment as CRNAs. There are 450 CRNAs practicing in Maryland, and by 2015 the University of Maryland will have graduated approximately 210 nurse anesthetists, almost half of the total CRNA membership in Maryland.

AAs are not recognized providers in the Military, while nurse anesthetists have been providing anesthesia care to soldiers on the front lines since the Civil War.

SB 798 and HB 1161 would decrease the number of operating rooms available to educate nurse anesthesia students because AAs are not allowed to train or supervise student nurse anesthetists.

In addition, this legislation could create a shortage of anesthesia providers in rural areas. Unlike CRNAs, AAs simply cannot meet the need of rural hospitals because they are required to be directly supervised by an anesthesiologist at all times. Because anesthesiologists typically shun working in rural communities,
