Contains unread posts Orozco Good evening all,Through a library search using our course resources, I went on
another site which discusses the transition from being a surgical
technologist to a first assist. A surgical technologist is there to help
the surgeon/s in things such as help prep the surgical instruments by
setting up the room, proper opening of surgical supplies, and equipment
used in surgery. Though a surgical tech may not know the intimate
details of a surgery, we know the steps to them, with that we can
anticipate what the surgeon/s will need to make the surgery move along
as it should. A first assistant, is not only one who can hand the
surgeon what he/she needs, they they also take on a much higher level of
involvement, almost like a surgeon. A. This piece I found I trust is highly useful because it can help
new and seasoned surgical techs help formulate a plan to step up their
craft and create a plan that can get them to a higher level of patient
care. B. Until today, I did not know about this path for my specialty, I
can even say with confidence that some of my fellow techs don’t know
about it either. Therefore I find this to be highly valuable, not just
to me, but even for the techs I work with, but as well as corpsmen that
work in my facility looking to find a specialty. C. Having met first assists throughout my training for surgical
technologist, this specialty is a very real thing and because the
training required to join this community is about as challenging as it
is real. For an individual to go from surgical technologist to a first assist
in the Navy is probably unheard of, individuals that go this route and
become first assists, they can continue to provide world class care and
even take on some roles that nurses have. Essentially, a first assist,
civilian or military, can act as a force multiplier which would greatly
help the surgical team and especially to the patient. References:Surgical technologists group expands first assistant eligibility. (2004). OR Manager, 20(4), 29.
