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.
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.
This duty station consists of a team of medical personnel whose job it is to prepare and supplement the Medical Department onboard the Marine Amphibious Carriers before and during the overseas deployment. Was awarded my fourth Navy Achievement Medal (NAM) for exemplary preparation of USS WASP LHD-1 surgical suites and surgical instrument sets and for scrubbing and first assisting that enabled a mass casualty situation involving crew members that required extensive surgery while transiting the Atlantic ocean to be performed flawlessly. Member of FST-4 Surgical Response Team temporarily assigned to the Naval Medical Clinic Bahrain as medical support after the USS COLE DDG-67 disaster. As part of a community outreach on the island of Bahrain our surgical team interacted with the Bahrain Defense Force Military Hospital staff and my fellow surgical tech and I scrubbed twelve different orthopedic and general surgery procedures over a four day period. Wonderful experience for all. In 2002 received my fifth NAM while deployed onboard USS BATAAN LHD-5 for demonstrating extraordinary surgical organizational skills in support of 2001"Operation Enduring Freedom" while on station in the Indian Ocean for trauma surgical procedures performed on nine injured Northern Alliance patients(friendly fire) constituting over twenty hours of continuous hours of surgery.
