I work for a small hospital. OR dept. of 4 rooms. I have 1 tech on call daily, for OR. The OB dept. at times, due to short staffing, does not put a tech on call, and in turn they have to use my OR tech. I have had complaints from the OR techs. that "hey, i am not on call for OB, why am I being called to do a c-section". I have attempted, numerous times, to sit and talk to the OB director, but she states that she is too busy. It's expected of me to always have an OR tech on call, why not her?
There has also been situations where OB does have a tech on call, but for whatever reason the house supervisor cannot reach that person and ends up calling the OR tech.
Please advise. Thank you.
