If you or someone you love has had a surgical procedure, a perioperative registered nurse was responsible your or your loved one’s well-being throughout the operation.
While all of the other medical professionals in the room, including the surgeon, anesthesia provider, surgical assistant and other personnel are focused on their specific duties, the perioperative registered nurse focuses on the patient for the duration of the procedure.
We provide specialized nursing care to surgical patients before, during and after surgery.
Nov. 11-15 marks the celebration of Perioperative Nurse Week, an annual celebration of their commitment to safe patient care. We are working hard to protect you — our patients — when you are most vulnerable.
