Surgical Services nurses are dedicated to providing outstanding quality care to our patients through collaboration with our surgeons, anesthesia providers and other team members. We work in accordance with the recommendations of the Association of Operating Room Nurses with many of our nurses having their CNOR certification. Within the operating room department, we assign a registered nurse circulator for every procedure. The scrub nurse role may be assumed by an RN or surgical technologist. We also have a designated charge nurse for each specialty service.
We have an all-RN nursing staff caring for our Ambulatory Care unit and PACU patients. Our nursing staff is highly experienced, has very little turnover, and enjoys excellent collegial relations with our anesthesia providers, surgeons and other members of our multidisciplinary team. This cohesion allows us to provide outstanding patient care, which is reflected in the many awards Bay Medical has received, such as being one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals. We are also top rated in our region and the nation for cardiac care, orthopedics, and GI surgery.
