Work Under Pressure

  1. I'm proud of O.R. nurses they could always work under pressure and as what most of the people says, they are the cream of the crop...

    Thank you for saying that. It burns me every time that I hear someone say that OR nursing is a technician's job, a monkey could do it, or you don't use your nursing skills.

    I would love to see a floor nurse, an ED nurse, or an ICU nurse try to properly set around a room, set up a procedure, position a patient, trouble shoot down equipment, appease an angry surgeon, provide ideas to circumvent unanticipated events, identify a kocher, know the risks of machinery, understand a pneumoperitoneum, and the risks associated to such a necessary thing, etc, etc, etc.

    I would want an RN - no - I would want an educated and experienced PERIOPERATIVE RN caring for my loved one in the OR. Certainly not a monkey.
