Retractor Holder

  1. I thought several years ago that the rules have changed and PCT could not be retractor holders during surgery. I thought that only scrub techs and such licensed staff could scrub in surgery.. I cannot find information supporting this. Can anyone help me out?

    It's in our state laws in Texas. Check with your state.

    Not to my knowledge. We have medical students scrub in and hold retractors every day. I don't know of any written policy on this, though. I'm in Missouri.
