Supposedly, I should go on duty from 10am to 6pm. But due to a number of minimal invasive surgeries scheduled for this day, my shift changed to morning shift, giving way to the other staff to take my shift so he could assist the MIS surgeries for the afternoon cases.
I was assigned on the first case. The operation lasts almost 5 hours since two procedures were done. I was the circulating nurse. At first, I fear doing the perineal preparation to the patient since I haven't done that procedure yet and am not even sure on how to do it. Thank God, I managed to do the preparation as it is. Good thing I observed how it was done from our Dilatation and Curettage cases.
That was a goal met for me and was happy with that achievement. Yihee!
