Before an operation, Surgical Technologists prepare the operating room by setting up surgical instruments and equipment. They also prepare patients for surgery by washing and disinfecting incision sites, positioning the patients on the operating table, covering them with sterile drapes, and taking them to and from the operating room. Surgical technologists prepare sterile solutions and medications used in surgery and check that all surgical equipment is working properly. They help the surgical team put on sterile gowns and gloves.
Can you handle pressure situations? As a Surgical Technologist you will need to be organized, reliable and able to work well as a part of a team. You will need to be adaptive and a good communicator.
