Section II. THE OPERATING ROOM TEAM
(1) The operating room team consists of all members of the OR staff. As
an example, the team includes the OR specialist who usually performs the patient's
skin preparation the day before surgery, the specialist who put up the packs that are
used for the operation, the specialist (or the AN Officer) who selects the set of
instruments, and the specialist who sterilizes the supplies used for the surgery.
Other team members who may not necessarily be in an OR during an
operation are the Chief of Department of Surgery, the Chief of Anesthesiology and
Operative Services, the OR Supervisor, and the noncommissioned officer In charge
(NCOIC). The surgical team is the group of people in the immediate area during a
surgical procedure. This includes the surgeon and one or more assistants (depending
on the complexity of the case), the anesthetist, the nurse or secialist performing the
scrub duties, and the nurse or specialist performing circulating duties. All team
members work together to accomplish the best possible care of the patient. Every job
performed in the OR--no matter how small--contributes to the welfare of the patient,
and no job is so important that it alone accounts for the recovery of the patient.
