The Times They Are A’Changing: 65 Years As An Operating Room Nurse

Can you imagine an operating room where nothing was disposable? Where drapes were made out of cloth, IV bottles were made out of glass, and where you powdered the surgeon’s gloves before sending them to be sterilized? On this episode of the First Case podcast, we sit down with Monica Weisbrich, BSN, RN, to discuss what the OR looked like in 1955 when she walked in as a new nurse. Tune in as she walks us through the evolution of surgery throughout her career and compare the OR that you know today with the one that she describes.

Enjoy listening as she shares her many years of experience with us!
