06 Apr Radiology oversight
If a patient checks into the ASC then we take this patient to radiology for a needle loc, does the radiologist doing the procedure need to be privileged if you have the ‘dept chief’ radiologist privileged for oversight of your dept. Someone is telling me that any radiologist that does a procedure or a ‘read’ on an ASC pt must be privileged. And not just the one radiologist that has oversight. Can someone clarify for me?
