- Jul 26, '12 by Charls RNIt is the nurse's role to position the patient depending if the doctor want to do it himself, but if not, you will be responsible for it and then before the procedure starts you should verify to the surgeon whether he agrees with it or would like to make some adjustments. You are the nurse, it is your room, so everything that goes inside the room is your call. The doctor may be the captain, but remember, you are your patient's advocate. The patient comes first before anything else.
