Hi

Does anyone work as an RN in an oral surgeon's office? Just wondering what the pay is like, what are the responsibilities. Any other info would be appreciated.

Thanks

I've done some moonlighting in oral surgery...

Its mostly wisdom teeth teens with some older implants thrown in for fun. My job consists of...

Bringing the pt in, getting them comfortable, ensuring they have taken their preop antibiotics

Baseline vitals and hookup to the dynamap

IV start

Med admin (mostly versed and fentanyl...sometimes ketamine)

Charting

Escort briefing on postop care etc

Pt Monitoring

IV removal

Prep for departure.

That pretty much it. To be honest its a pretty good gig and I enjoy it...its a nice change from the hospital. The pay ranges from around $25-$30/hr based of course on who you work for. My surgeon has an advanced airway kit, an AED and reversals on hand at all times. The pt is constantly monitored until departure which is a pretty comfortable feeling for me.

Hope this helps.
