It was decided that my OR would add a weekend shift.
A nurse and a tech and Pacu team too.
We’ve hired the tech.
There hasn’t been a good fit for the RN role.
But the tech has been training during the week on the evening shift.
And tonight I laid it all out for her.
How to prioritize cases.
How to get an emergency case done.
What kind of emergency cases that are done in our OR.
How to utilize the laser call person.
How to find out information that is needed.
Because her orientation will be over.
And, until she has a nurse, she’ll have to forge ahead.
She is motivated.
I think she’ll do fine.
