My husbands job at the hospital has been changing lately. For the last few years he’s worked in the Recovery room as an attendant, but the hours are changing there and the OR is in desperate need of assistants so to make up for the hours that he’ll be losing in the recovery room soon he’s been training as an O.R. Assistant for the last few months.
In fact the last few weekends he’s been finishing up his training. He does everything from setting up the O.R.s for surgeries to assisting during surgery when needed. Assisting can be anything from helping hold a patients limb or handing things to a doctor or nurse during a procedure. I suppose if his hours continue to decline at the hospital between his experience as a Recovery Room assistant and his training in the OR he’d be able to apply for Surgical Technologist Jobs at other hospitals or clinics.
Hopefully between the two departments that my husbands been working in he’ll get enough hours. As of right now he’s working 6 and 7 days a week, but that’s only because he’s training in the OR once the training is done we’ll see what happens.
