January 21-27, 2018, is National CRNA Week

This week is National CRNA Week, and Campbell County Health would like to say thank you to all the CRNAs who practice in our community and continue to provide Excellence Every Day.

Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) are advanced practice registered nurses who administer approximately 40 million anesthetics to patients in the United States each year. CRNAs are the primary providers of anesthesia care in rural America, enabling healthcare facilities in medically underserved areas to offer obstetrical, surgical, and trauma stabilization services.

When anesthesia is administered by a nurse anesthetist, it is recognized as the practice of nursing; when administered by an anesthesiologist, it is recognized as the practice of medicine. CRNAs and anesthesiologists work together as a team at CCH to provide exceptional patient care in Campbell County Memorial Hospital's Surgical Services department and at the Powder River Surgery Center.
