"Surgical Technology is an instructional program that prepares an individual to serve as a member of the surgical team to work with surgeons, anesthesiologists and certified registered nurse anesthetists, registered nurses and other surgical personnel in delivering patient care and assuming appropriate responsibilities before, during and after surgery. Surgical technologists assist the surgeons in surgical procedures by preparing the room, instruments and equipment. Before a surgical procedure, they assist in preparing the operating room for the procedure by pulling the sterile items necessary, setting up the surgical instruments and equipment, accepting sterile solutions, applying sterile drapes and gowning and gloving the surgeon and his/her assistants. During the operative procedure, the surgical technologist passes the appropriate instruments to the surgeon and is responsible for ensuring the surgical counts of instruments, sharps and sponges is accurate. Most surgical technologists work in the hospital setting in an operating room."
