The Operating Room Unit provides assistance to the surgical staff in meeting the emergency, preventative and restorative health needs of patients.
The Operating Room is comprised of distinct functions concerned with a safe physical environment and protection of patients, with continuous awareness of the dignity of humans and their physical and spiritual needs.
The unit employees Registered Nurses, all of whom are ACLS certified, Licensed Practical Nurses, and Surgical Technicians, as well as Certified Registered Nurse First Assistants and Certified Operating Room Nurses—all who are responsible for proving 24-hour emergency service to the community that we serve.
Short Stay Suite
Also under the umbrella of the Surgical Services is our Short Stay Suite which was formerly our OB department. This department was renovated for surgical patients. All patients for surgery begin in this department which is staffed with RNs, LPNs and PCAs, all with many years of experience at giving the best care to our patients.
Endoscopy is located within our Short Stay Suite to provide a private and comfortable area for procedures by a complete staff of caring RNs and LPNs.
Central Service Processing is also located within the operating room and staffed with certified technicians who ensure the sterility of instrumentation both within our hospital and for doctors’ offices and ancillary areas affiliated with Brookville Hospital.
