It's my understanding that you can only bill for supervision if the supervision lasted the entire duration. I'd say the QZ is more appropriate.

Many states do not require physician supervision for a CRNA. CA is one of them. I don't know if Trauma hospital makes a difference or not. So QZ would be the Mod if there was no physician supervision

Heres a map of states that do or dont require CRNA supervision.
