Simply said, with a Doctor for a parent, nurses gained a great deal of respect from our family. Operating Room nurses are a focused, disciplined group that basically perform as a team with the surgeon(s) and other nurses to provide the absolute safest, most efficient environment for one patient at a time. And sometimes, it can be under some pretty crazy situations. We found this article about 2 different types of OR nurses – at a surgery clinic in a small town and the other, part of a traveling surgical team. This will give you a little more insight on what it really is like to work side-by-side other medical professionals in what can be a very stressful environment. I want to personally thank all of the wonderful OR nurses helping to keep us safe during surgery.
