The Clinical Practice Resources and COVID-19 State Government Resources webpages linked to on this site are updated regularly with information for anesthesia professionals and include COVID-19 FAQs in a clinical setting, and an infographic titled “Anesthesia Care of the Patient with Coronavirus.” Additional resources include CRNA-specific Executive Orders for each state. For example, in Kentucky, the requirement for APRNs to have collaborative agreements with physicians as a prerequisite for the prescribing of legend drugs and controlled substances within the Commonwealth has been waived. Other states have waived the requirement to review patient charts and records. More examples of waived requirements can be found on AANA’s website.
