Surgical Technician

Surgical technicians, also known as scrubs or scrub techs, are critical members of operating room teams. They help prepare the operation room for surgery, assist the surgeon in putting on his or her gown, pass instruments and anticipate the surgeon’s needs during an operation, and ensure that there are no breaks in sterile techniques throughout the entire process to ensure the patient does not acquire a surgical site infection.
