-"The most rewarding part of assisting with regional anesthesia is aiding in providing a near pain-free procedure for the patient. Patients have a positive outlook during the post-op process when they have little to no pain. Find a couple of nurses and train them to assist. An extra set of eyes and knowledge helps in making the regional anesthesia procedure be successful in a timely manner." Tosha enjoys playing with her son, reading, and being outdoors.
