Just out of pure curiosity,what kind of cases get two techs(or scrub nurses) in your OR? I like the OR I'm in now, but it's not unusual to have a surgeon stamp his/her feet because they can't have two scrubs
for an inguinal hernia or some other small case. Heck, the places I've scrubbed before, you had one tech for a lap appy and sometimes even a lap chole, if we were short staffed. I even had to scrub a AAA with just me and the doc until the PA showed up. Are our docs just a wee bit spoiled?
