RN Operating Room Circulator-Experienced in Ortho
at United Surgical Partners International Inc (USPI)
We are looking for an experienced OR Circulator for a busy Orthopedic and Urology OR in our Surgery Center. Circulating nurses have a crucial role in the surgery setting. Circulating nurses may ensure all patient paperwork is completed, such as consent forms. During the procedure, nurses may also document what takes place. They are a patient advocate in that they assure that safety procedures are being met. Circulating nurses may also replenish surgical supplies as needed during the procedure. After the procedure, they may verify instrument count and complete charting and other related duties.
Being detail oriented is also a needed skill for OR nurses. Small mistakes in the operating room can have a big impact on a patient’s condition. Nurses must also be able to handle several things at once. For instance, they may need to listen to the surgeon, monitor the patient and assist with the procedure at the same time.
Ideal candidate will be focused on excellent customer service, have the ability to multi-task, the ability to show flexibility in assignments, maintain scrupulous infection control standards, maintain professional competencies and have the ability to work as part of an interdependent multidisciplinary team. Position requires weekdays only -- no holidays, weekends, or call. Some later evenings required. Competitive salary and benefits for the right candidate.
OR nurses are expected to work well as part of a team since they will be collaborating with other medical professionals. Good communication skills are also a must. OR nurses may be instructing patients, talking with families and conveying information to other healthcare workers. The ability to communicate information quickly, concisely and accurately is an essential aspect of the job.
Nurses who work in the operating room should be problem solvers and be confident making critical decisions. Although nurses in the OR work under the supervision of a surgeon, they still need to be able to function independently. Surgeons depend on their team, including nurses, to perform their job without a lot of direction.
- 3 - 5 years of Orthopedic OR Experience required
- ASC experience highly preferred
- BLS, ACLS Certification required
- Must hold current Florida nursing license
