We run two rooms a day 10 hour days 18 cases per room each day.
Two Nurses in recovery room 1 RN at least other is PCA, Ma, or LPN
Two admit nurses either RN or LPN
One RN in each room and one either LPN,MA or Surgical Assistant, PCA
One Scope washer
Scope washer takes down the dirty scope and the assist person washes down every thing between cases and sets up for next case while the RN takes patient out to recovery room and gives report.
Admit person brings next pt in to room and hooks them up.
Works well if we are short a person then the assist person usally floats from room to room most colons are pretty easy with one RN in the room unless Snaring when we do uppers we usually need two in the room to help.
