I typically get Monday as my "office day" once a week, and scrub Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays ortho. I scrub with a GYN surgeon on Fridays who requests me.
The facility should
give you a couple of hours to do this. To expect you to do it during the case isn't fair to you or the pt., for the reason you stated about attention. Tell your supervisor that you need time specifically to do this and why.
I have an index cards that has my "do at the end of the day" stuff on it. I check the specialty supplies, and special order supplies before i clock out.
Surely there's someone there who scrubs
ortho a lot. Ask if they would help you. Also, ask someone who circulates a lot of ortho for help.
As for preference sheets, people who are aasigned to a surgeon make the changes as needed, and put those in my inbox. I then go through and update it on the computer so that the next time they print out, the corrections are on it (i try to do this in free time, but they are definitely done on Mondays).
Where i work, preference sheets can
be updated on the room computers, but i've only seen someone do this during long cases.
