Recently landed an OR position. Orientation is approx 6 months. The unit is great. Everyone pretty much works as a team and offers lots of input/knowledge. After learning the basics we have begun double scrubbing and double circulating. I am not perfect at either, but I am only a month in. I do not jeopardize patient safety or sterility. For the most part everyone is a good teacher however there is one exception. One particular person denotes sarcasm whenever you do something he doesnt like- it could be the way you set your back table up or your mayo table or even how u gown the surgeon. These things are important but minuet to me. I will get a feel for things and create a better flow for myself as time goes on. I am glad the expectation is high but when there is continuous criticism it deflates ur confidence and performance. I do not get offended easily and I can easily brush off side comments and/or attitudes but this particular person has made me miserable inside. I am glad when I am not paired with him. Huge sigh of relief. All the other orientees feel the same about this person. What can I say or do to make this unnecessary bull stop? It does not help in any way, shape, or form. I highly doubt this person was perfect and knew every case one month in or what instruments to anticipate handing over. I let the behavior slide too long and I have had enough. I dont want to make the work environment uncomfortable and I am not giving up but I feel the issue needs to be addressed.
