Nursing Care for Surgical Patients
Among the many benefits of surgical services at BMC are highly experienced registered nurses and surgical technicians who bring advanced certification, training and years of service to the care of our patients.
The operating rooms are staffed with registered nurses and certified surgical technicians with specialized training relating to their specific area. The vast majority have more than 10 years of experience working in surgical services.
In patient recovery areas, 100 percent of our staff is trained in advanced life support and all have trauma certifications.
Following surgery, patients go to our Surgical Care Unit which is staffed by registered nurses who deal exclusively with patients recovering from surgery. Low turnover in our staff has produced the region's most experienced team of nurses, who are very familiar with all of the issues surrounding post-operative care.
