    Curious what your institution’s process is for Moderate Sedation for LP and Bone Marrow procedures. 
    Do your Hem/Onc nurses assist with sedation and monitoring on the unit?
    If sedation is done on the unit are you using Propofol?   
    Does Anesthesia or PICU intensivists provide sedation in a procedural area?

    Looking at best practice and standardization.

    Thank you in advance!
