hi everyone!i just started working at a HCA hospital in the O.R. 6 months ago. i have 30 yrs experience in the O.R. 9 of which were as a CST. I also was a traveler for 19 years of that and worked in roughly 34 O.R.'s. I am now a staff nurse in a small hospital. I really love this job and plan on retiring here. It's near beautiful beaches, I'm in my mid 50's and my body can't handle the craziness it use to! lol! anyway, the facility here has a mandatory rule that we wear warm up jackets ALL the time while working..... I've never seen this anywhere in my travels. Has anyone experienced this? I am a hormonal menopausal female and i sweat. also, one of our anesthesiologists has to warm up the room prior to incision which is ok, but with a jacket on, i'm dying.... thanks for your input!
