I have been working in Orthopaedic Surgery for 1 and 1/2 year now, not my chosen area of surgery but I considered it to be an opening into OR.
Yesterday I was sworn at one time too many by a surgeon whom I was scrubbing for. I told him I would work better if he did not swear at me. He promptly denied swearing at me, asked his assistant who also said he had not sworn. My circulating staff did not hear anything bcs they were not in theatre at that precise minute. Nor did the anaesthesist nor the anaesthetic nurse!!!
I obviously am delusional!! Because no one "heard him"', I have no support, so what do I do now? Keep my head down and hope for the best?
