All of these responses are true. Very fast paced. Like expecting 10 minute turnovers even after a messy 4 hour shoulder arthroscopy. I didn't get hired as a surgical tech as I had thought. Apparently my job also required safety officer, biomedical waste, instrument decontamination, sterile processing department. On days when cases are booked from 0700 til 9:45pm, everything else listed is still required of you. Then the following day, you get a call off. Then sometimes they try and have you take another day as well. It wasnt exactly feast or famine, it was lack of Dr block time, cases can be put on the schedule at 5 pm then expected to have instrument trays brought in, decontamination washed, dried and sterilized for an 0700 case the following morning BUT, most of the staff has already left for the day due to lack of cases. That means having an employee(tech) come in at 0500 to get the instruments ready, then have to have the Dr sign off on a piece of paper stating that he knows the tray was used prior to the biological incubating for its full cycle to determine sterility. I could go on and on as to how the treat their employees( if your not sacrificing more of your life to this job, they don't want you) but, I should stop here. Beware

At Hyde Park Surgery center you can call it fast and furious. Management expects 8 hours of work to be done in 4. Get patients ready and then you have 2 hours to call all patients for the next day, get all charts ready, present or scan info to the head Anesthesia person and wait for approval if something fell through the cracks. Re-scan and call all offices to make sure they got the faxes. Then if you're all done with doing consents and everything else you are supposed to call the patients for the next 2 weeks out. You are expected to already know all this and not expected to ask your peers or management for help. If you are super nurse you will be fine. Hire a part-time PAT Nurse or be transparent in what the job actually entails. They don't tell you when you're doing something wrong, instead write-ups are the course of action.

Questions are seen as weakness.
