Scope of Practice for Anesthesia Technology Professionals
Scope of practice is the legally authorized parameter regarding the clinical functions of assessment, intervention and level of care that a healthcare practitioner can provide to a patient. While an organization may limit or narrow the scope of practice of an individual through a job description and/or policy and procedure, an organization may not allow an employee to act outside his or her legal scope of practice.
