Surgical technologists, also known as surgical technicians or operating room technicians, work in surgical teams under the supervision of more senior personnel such as surgeons and registered nurses in a variety of necessary support roles. Before an operation, surgical technologists prepare the operating room for operations, ensure the cleanliness and sterility of the operating room and all surfaces, drapes, sterile solutions, and tools to be used in the operation and also clean, shave, and disinfect incision sites on the patient. During a procedure, surgical technologists monitor position and drape patients as per the needs of the operation and of the surgical team as well as monitor the patient's vital signs and charts in order to help ensure that the operation proceeds smoothly. They may also handle instruments, medication, and other equipment and close incisions during procedures.
