Orthopedic Circulating RN
Resurgens Surgery Center is a single-specialty outpatient surgery practice that specializes in orthopedic surgery. Our surgery center is a joint venture between Resurgens Orthopedic Group and USPI, the nation's largest provider of surgical services.
We are committed to excellence in patient care- EVERY patient-EVERY time. We are currently seeking to add a circulating RN to our nursing staff. The ideal candidate will be focused on excellent customer service, have the ability to multi-task, the ability to show flexibility in assignments, maintain scrupulous infection control standards, maintain professional competencies and have the ability to work as part of an interdependent multidisciplinary team. This professional will be responsible for circulating ortho cases and previous experience in orthopedic surgeries is highly valued.
A circulating nurse operates as a go-between for the operating room staff and the rest of the surgery center. They are not scrubbed in. A circulating nurse does the initial assessment of the patient as he/she is wheeled into the operating room and makes sure that the patient is comfortable. The circulating nurse also assists the surgeon and scrub nurse as they clean up and prepare for the surgery. During the surgery, circulating nurses hand packages of supplies to the scrub nurse as necessary. If something is required from outside of the room, or if the surgeon needs a message passed on to another staff or family member, it falls to a circulating nurse.
After the surgery, the circulating nurse counts opened packages and used supplies, to make sure the numbers add up correctly. This is to ensure that there were no supplies accidentally left inside the patient during the surgery. They are a vital member of the surgical team and ensuring patient safety.
Candidates must have graduated from an accredited school of nursing and hold a current unrestricted license to practice in the State of Georgia.
Current American Heart BLS certification and experience working as a circulator required.
