Just wanted to get some feedback from other OR nurses out there. I know a fellow nurse who works for a surgeon who has 2 operating rooms within his practice. During a case he has an anesthesiologist, medical assistants or techs assisting with procedures. He expects her to fill out circulating paperwork even though she is not present during the case. Positioning, final count etc! She believes she is not liable since she fills out the paperwork but does not sign her name. The surgeon tells her no one else in the procedure is allowed to fill out these forms. She is busy pre-op pts and recovering pts. I told her she is crazy for doing this that she can lose her license.
Just wanted to hear some feedback about this.
