November 14th is Operating Room Nurse Day! This holiday takes place every year on November 14th. It is celebrated worldwide to show support and to honor our operating room nurses.
Perioperative nursing is a nursing specialty that works with patients who are having operative or other invasive procedures. Operating room nurses provide care to patients before, during, and after surgery. These nurses are responsible for keeping a clean environment in the operating room. They are normally the last person the patients see before being put sleep and the first ones they see when they wake up. They also have to make sure that the operating room team provides the best care possible to the patient. It is a high-stress job that requires emotional and physical stamina.
You can show your thanks and appreciation to an operating nurse that you know by saying a simple thank you.
