OR in the basement?

Specializes in OR.

Just curious... how many of you work in an OR that is in the basement if your hospital? City only for response. I do, and wonder how often this is done. Thanks in advance!

I travel to hospitals all over the world and have seen OR's in every level from Basement to top floor.

I used to work in one that was in a sub-basement. Two floors below ground.

Oh my, the sub-basement?! The basement is bad enough.

We are on the ground floor, but we used to be located on a higher floor.

The hospital in which I am doing my periop clinical at has their main ORs in the basement; the ASC is on the third or fourth floor I believe. I shadowed a CRNA at another hospital and we were a few floors up!
