Scrub Nurse performs multiple tasks during an operation/procedure. As a Scrub Nurse, you will scrub in on procedures from open heart to orthopedics. The scrub nurse's primary responsibilities is to arrive before the procedure to set up the room, checking its condition and ensuring that adequate supplies are available. In the absence of a surgical technician, a scrub nurse will assist other team members with gowning after they scrub. As the Scrub Nurse During surgery, you will assist the surgeon by passing instruments -- such as scalpels and retractors -- or supplies -- such as pads and sponges -- to the surgeon. The nurse must be knowledgeable enough to follow the progress of the procedure and anticipate the surgeon's needs, having the correct items available immediately when requested. The scrub nurse also maintains a count of pads and sponges used in the procedure and verifies that the correct number are also removed from the patient. When necessary, the scrub nurse requests additional instruments or supplies from the circulating team members.
