I want to compare OR's. Where I work and anywhere else in America. I work in a small independent surgery center in N.Alabama. Question 1, versed is given before circulator can check the permit. Is this the norm? 2.We have no support help. RN circulators have to do the C-arm, laser, local cases with no other nurse. Is this the norm where you work. I am worn out from pushing the C-arm, neuro microscope, moving beds from room to room, pushing the mop between cases feeling like I have to do it all myself and usually don't have help as the scrub is busy doing their thing...before I walk out of OR for good tell me how it is out there? Please. What can I expect if I leave here and move to Florida...our pay is 15/hr, no shift diff, we have to stay till all cases are completed. You could essentially be here everyday till 5 or 6pm. I am tired and had enough. I have been nursing for 25yrs...what else is there? Thanks, Karen .
