The OR nurse will be responsible for every aspect of the patient's
care during surgery. The day begins with preparing the room for the
procedure, picking the patient up from pre-op, positioning the
patient, maintaining the charting and caring for the patient
before, during and after the surgery. The nurse will act as the
liaison between the family and the surgeon beginning with the call
to let the family know that the first incision has been made. The
nurse will continue to contact the family every hour or two to
provide updates. During the surgery, the nurse is responsible for
updating charting/paperwork, getting supplies if needed and
administering meds to the sterile field. This process may be
repeated for 1-4 surgeries a day depending on length of each
surgery. Works in an extremely team focused environment with your
