Surgical Technologist service before self...Hospital Corpsman 1st class Amanda Baugh and Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Yuliana Hernandezgalicia represented Navy Medicine Readiness Training Command Bremerton at the Try-A-Trade Day held at the Kitsap Fairgrounds, Nov. 2, 2022. The corpsmen shared information on their surgical technologist specialty training, which has them responsible for various duties in the Main Operating Room and in other clinical areas such as Ears Nose (and) Throat, Dentistry and Ophthalmology. A typical day for surgical techs in the Main OR has them scrubbing up and preparing what’s required for surgical cases where they clean, disinfect, and ensure proper sterilization has taken place for all the used gear. They pull all the instrumentation and consumables required for each surgery that are performed and help the circulating nurse prepare the room for the case. They then scrub in to set all the gear up, while maintaining sterile technique. Upon completion of every surgery case, the surgical techs are charged with securing all the used equipment to prepare for the disinfection and sterilization processes. The entire process is crucially repeated for each additional case. Baugh and Hernandezgalicia were one of over 60 professional informational booths and displays set up showcasing career opportunities from a number of fields such as aerospace, construction, food service, healthcare, law enforcement, maritime, military branches and more to over 500 high school students (Official Navy photo by Douglas H Stutz, NHB/NMRTC Bremerton public affairs officer).
