Company: Vanderbilt Health
Location: Nashville
Posted on: October 19, 2020

Job Description:

Your Role:

Our Registered Nurses in Perioperative Services,

are circulating nurses. The OR Nurse is an important part of the surgical team

in our highly-technical, cutting edge environment. In addition to preparing the

operating room, the registered nurse checks the stock of supplies and

instruments. Problem-solving is a regular duty of a circulating nurse.

Equipment must be checked and double-checked. If something is missing or not in

working order, the circulating nurse finds a solution. As a patient advocate,

the circulating nurse interacts with the patient before surgery and serves as a

patient protector during surgery. Assessing the patient right before surgery is

critical to making sure that all required prep was completed. Serving as a

patient advocate and safety monitor, the circulating nurse observes the surgery

and ensures that no aspect of patient care is missed. They also study data and

respond quickly if any concerns arise. Our circulating nurses are

highly-skilled and provide exceptional, high-quality care.
