Surgery Tech

A surgical technologist is an invaluable member of the operating room. The daily duties of a surgical technologist include: instrumentation sterilization, equipment management, patient safety, and assisting the surgeon with instrumentation during the surgical procedure.

Before surgery, the surgical technologist is responsible for preparing both the surgical room and the patient for surgery. They also assemble equipment that will be used during surgery, check for malfunctions and make any needed adjustments. The surgical tech prepares the patient by clensing, shaving (if necessary), and sterilizing the site of the surgery. They are also involved in patient transfer and positioning both pre and post-operatively.

During surgery, surgical technologists hand instruments and other supplies to the surgeon, as well as help the surgeon into fresh gowns and gloves. They may be asked to assist the surgeon in suturing wounds, applying dressing, handling tissue, or cutting stitches. Specimens taken from the patient for later study will be cared for by the surgical technologist.

After the operation is complete, the surgical technologist transports the patient to recovery and cleans the operating room in preparation for the next case.
