Surgical Technologists are allied health professionals who assist with surgical care of patients. They are experts in the area of aseptic technique and function under the direct supervision of the surgeon. Their job responsibilities include, but are not limited to, scrubbing, gowning and gloving themselves as well as the surgical team, establishing the sterile field, verifying instruments and miscellaneous counts and maintaining the sterile field and the sterility of personnel and supplies during the pre, intra and post operational phases of surgery.
The Accreditation Review Committee on Education in Surgical Technology describes the Surgical Technologists as:
“… Possess[ing] expertise in the theory and application of sterile and aseptic technique and combines the knowledge of human anatomy, surgical procedures, and implementation tools and technologies to facilitate a physician’s performance of invasive therapeutic and diagnostic procedures."
