Nitrous Oxide

Are you using Nitrous Oxide in your facility now? If you are, was there a lot of push-back by anyone in trying to get policies around it?  Have those policies changed since the pandemic started?

Our facility does use Nitrous Oxide but because of Covid-19 we are not currently using it.

Thanks for chiming in Staci.  Is that because of possible droplet contamination as the mom affixes and lets the mask down?  Or is there another reason?
