If you ask a patient who took care of them in the OR, they’ll definitely remember their surgeon, and they’ll probably remember their anesthetist and their nurse. But, do they ever remember the surgical technologist (ST)? Do they even know there was another expert scrubbed in for their case? In this Season 6 interview with Chris Blevins, CST, Founder of the Scrub Life Podcast, we talk about the desperate need for awareness around the important role that STs play in the operating room. Find out how we can educate about the profession, how we can reduce the national shortage of STs, and how we can advocate for better pay for this vital perioperative role.
