Fast paced, and productive.
Sterile Processing Technician (Former Employee) – Jackson, MS 39205 – July 17, 2017
Typical day at UMMC on second shift most times start off busy. Mostly 80+ cases in the main OR plus Day Surgery OR which added an additional 20+, and sometimes included the Women's Hospital which added 5-10 cases. So most times we where busy and short of staff. I learned all of my skills in sterile processing there everything from general, ortho, neuro, cardiovascular, ent sets, eye sets, laparoscopic, transplant sets, processing some scopes, and synthesis/implants (which is kind of my weakness because we only had certain people working in that area, but I do have experience with them. Just not my strongest points). Management was ok sometimes but most times was unorganized. Workplace culture was ok for the most part. The hardest part of the job the many cases we had with short of staff but most times we got the job done. The enjoyable part was learning new things and working as a team to get the job done.
