Surgical Technician II 04/2012 to Present
St. David's Round Rock Medical Center Round Rock, TX

Currently assigned to the 1100-1900 shift for approximately six months.  Duties include providing lunch relief and relieving day shift scrub technicians in suites designated by OR Supervisor.  Other duties include standing by for incoming emergency trauma patients, pulling cases for either add on or the next day procedures, putting away bulk supplies and restocking in Central Storage, keeping Center Core area free of excess case carts and equipment, helping turn-over rooms and helping circulators prepare and begin procedures.

I was previously assigned to the evening shift 1430-2300 and have scrubbed all types of OR procedures at RRMC including trauma (gun shot, stabbing, I-35 auto/motorcycle and boating accidents), orthopedics, neurosurgery, general surgery, plastics, urology, ENT, GYN and opthamology trauma. 

As a senior surgical technician I am always finding myself teaching and helping less experienced technicians with the complicated and intimidating neurosurgery service with the emphasis in "crash crani's" and I have helped three fellow technicians to date who are now comfortable with scrubbing a craniotomy procedure.

Surgical Technician II 05/2008 to 03/2012
Anne Arundel Medical Center Annapolis, MD
Began my career at AAMC as a travel surgical technician with the American Mobile Healthcare Agency completing two 90 day assignments and then was invited to become staff at the end of the last contract period. During my time with AAMC I was assigned to the 1500-2300 shift and my scrub experience includes: assisting a very busy neurosurgery group with both scheduled and trauma craniotomy procedures and complex spinal fusions and an also busy orthopedic spinal group with multilevel fusion as the norm.  When I was not assigned to the former I scrubbed multiple total joints, ORIFs, femoral nails and ENT procedures.  AAMC did not have a vascular team the first three years I was staff, therefor as a second shift scrub I was assigned to scrub AVFs, femoral popliteal bypass, carotid endarterectomy and thoracotomy procedures. One of my fellow PM shift surgical technicians took an interest in scrubbing a craniotomy and I back-scrubbed her several times until she felt comfortable on her own.
Surgical Technician II 03/2008 to 05/2008
ST. Luke's Hospital & Health Network New York, NY
Assigned to St Luke's as a travel surgical technician with the Medstaff Healthcare Travel agency.  Procedures assigned to included general surgery, orthopedics, total joints, vascular and the organ transplant service.
Surgical Technician II 05/2007 to 03/2008

Assigned to Craven Co Hospital with the First Assist Healthcare Travel Agency for an eleven month contract period.  Again I was assigned to the evening shift of 1500-2300.  Scrubbed a vast difference of procedures including: C-Sections, neurosurgery, all orthopedic specialties, general surgery and a major amount of vascular procedures.
HM-8483 Surgical Technician 05/2002 to 05/2006
National Naval Medical Center Bethesda, MD

Transferred to National Naval Medical Center (NNMC) as my last USN duty station and was assigned as the Ambulatory Surgery Center Leading Petty Officer (LPO).  My duties included: ordering surgical and office supplies for the clinic and I was in charge of four junior surgical technicians and was responsible for their daily assignments and quarterly/yearly evaluations.
Upon 2003 "Operation Iraqi Freedom" (OIF), I was assigned to the hospital ship USNS COMFORT with 750 medical personnel from NNMC.  My duties were as a Senior Surgical Technician in charge of fifteen personnel on the second shift OR crew.  This operation turned into a humanitarian mission for the injured Iraqi people who were not "combatants".  I do not recall the total number of surgical procedures performed while on station in the Persian Gulf, but the inpatient number rarely dropped below 1000, the ships bed capacity.
When the mission was completed,  I was reassigned as the LPO  in charge of the NNMC neurosurgery service upon our return stateside.  I was in charge of five surgical technicians who like myself were trained in neurosurgery techniques.  My duties included daily assignments, evaluations and training new technicians entering our service.  Ordering consumable neuro supplies as well as instrumentation and coordinating with the neurosurgeons of upcoming surgical procedures requiring specialized equipment was also one of my responsibilities. 

As NNMC began receiving more and more OIF casualties, our workload increased dramatically to the point of all elective surgeries were suspended in order to take care of our injured Marines who were arriving at Andrew Air Force base within 24 hours of their injuries.  Everyone (medical students from the area, civilian Doctors and  Nurses were brought on-board to help) scrubbed and circulated these procedures.  As one of the Senior Tech's our responsibility was to of course scrub but also help coordinate the staff and distribute supplies to the OR rooms.  Thankfully that scenario did slow down  and thankfully it was time to retire from a very fulfilling and traumatic time in my career.
