The compass report has made it much easier for the CRNAs to find the information needed. </li></ul><ul><li>“ I believe that the changes made will help provide safer and more efficient care for the patients at HCMC.  In addition, the compass report provides us with an excellent tool to use during 'hand offs' between anesthesia and PACU. This will definitely help us to comply with the standards to meet JCAHO requirements. Thanks! </li></ul><ul><li>-Jackie Erickson, CRNA HCMC Anesthesia Director </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
