infusion center question

We have an infusion center that provides IVG infusions late in the day. Staffing is one nurse and one patient (no MD, no other nurse). Are we required to have a physician or a second nurse available for patient safety/emergency response purposes? The infusion center is attached to and accessible from the hospital but is locked, for security purposes, when IVG infusions extend past normal business hours.

Thank you,
