PRINCIPAL DUTIES AND JOB RESPONSIBILITIES:
 

A Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) is responsible for the administration of anesthesia to patients when they need surgical intervention for their medical condition(s). In the state of Georgia, a CRNA is required by law to work in a supervised medical team approach to the surgical patient with either an anesthesiologist or another medical doctor. Despite the supervised nature for a CRNA in the State of Georgia, typically this position enjoys a very high level of autonomy. Due to this autonomy, a CRNA is held to very high standards of education and job conduct.

Job Specific Responsibilities:

·         The qualifications to becoming a CRNA are rigorous, and the responsibility a CRNA carries is significant. The CRNA shares responsibility for managing the patient’s anesthetic care and delivery. 

·         The CRNA must have a fundamental and foundational understanding of the potential medical complications associated with anesthesia and how to readily correct any complications which might occur.

·         One of the responsibilities of a CRNA is vigilance in physiologically monitoring the well-being of the patient while under anesthesia to reduce the risk of any complications arising and to allow for quick diagnosis and corrective actions if a complication ensues.

·         A CRNA is responsible for maintaining his/her peri-operative anesthesia medical records, either electronic or paper, per the policy of the facility.

·         To provide the highest quality of care, A CRNA will collaborate with other health care professionals, including surgeons and primary care doctors, when the patient’s condition necessitates.

·         The CRNA’s responsibilities include providing pre-operative and intra-operative, as well as, post-operative patient care and evaluation
