At the Rothman Orthopaedic Specialty Hospital, I would arrive at 5 am. First I would prepare my work space by obtaining my computer, ensuring the bay was stocked with supplies, area was clean and ready to receive patients. I would greet my client at the information desk and escort them to their assigned bed in the pre-admission area to prepare for surgery. There I would ensure proper pt, allergies, and receive consents for treatment. I would initiate INTs and administered ordered medications. This prep would also include the identification of correct limb and skin prep and shaving if necessary. At times I would also accompany the patient to the "block room". There I would work closely with the Anesthesiologist to position the pt, monitor vital signs during anesthesia procedure.
