In honor of Surgical Technologists Week, we would like to recognize our Surgical Tech team for providing excellent surgical care to Cullman Regional’s patients. Surgical technologists work under the supervision of a surgeon and RN Circulator to facilitate the safe and effective conduct of surgical procedures.
The surgical technologist handles the instruments, supplies and equipment necessary during the surgical procedure. They have an understanding of the procedure being performed and anticipate the needs of the surgeon. A surgical tech also has the necessary knowledge and ability to ensure quality patient care during the operative procedure and is constantly on vigil for maintenance of the sterile field.
Cullman Regional’s Surgical Technologist Team includes RNs, operating room technicians, schedulers, materials management and support personnel. Surgical procedures are performed Monday-Friday from 6:30 am – 5:00 pm and on call afternoons and weekends for emergencies.
