The LPN in the endoscopy suite works in the procedure room right alongside of the MD performing tasks and maneuvers as delegated to them from the Endoscopist. This hands-on position requires great technical skills as well as a vast knowledge of anatomy and physiology. The LPN plays a key role in collaborating with the MD and other members of the health care team to provide the best care possible to the patients. LPN’s set up a room according to procedure type, MD preference and therapies or diagnostics that are ordered for the procedure. This role includes assisting the MD with equipment during the endoscopy procedure for ERCP, EUS and complex cases. Medical documentation, medication administration and review of the patient’s history are all performed by the LPN. This role also includes time on our emergency bedside team who can be activated 24/7 to perform lifesaving endoscopies anywhere in the hospital.
