  1. Is cysto part of your OR dept? Are you expected to rotate thru cysto? Or is it managed seperately?

    It is part and everyone has to rotate through, but I hear you. At a previous facility we had one RN who "owned" the cysto world - we were allowed to spend two day in the room and that was it! Every other facility I've worked has that one cysto coordinator that has worked cysto for many, many years, but everyone is expected to rotate it.

    Yes, it's part of the main OR and we all rotate through to staff it, though there is usually at least one person in the room who has a special interest in GU and does it often.

    I agree. Basically did a lot of standing and watching. I like more hands-on things.

    Luckily we have two people that like to do cysto all the time, They can have it lol.

    Yes cysto is part of our main OR and everyone rotates through it. Depending on what is scheduled for the day and how many starts we have, any one of us may end up running the cysto room and at times with a scrub who has little experience in it so we're scrambling a bit. It helps that our primary GU doc is incredible and doesn't stress or get nasty when we aren't as fast as those who do it all the time. However, we are good at turning over the room and I usually will interview multiple patients before the first case so anesthesia or I can fetch the next patient while the scrub and orderlies ready the room making for really great turnovers. Unless we have a patient that has difficulty under or coming out of anesthesia, or patients that are late showing up, we always finish WELLLL ahead of scheduled time. GU doc is a happy camper LOL

    Ok, that was rambling if I ever heard any!!! ROFL
