Surgical Services at Bay Medical Center features 8 surgical suites. Our surgical suites provide the latest technology for orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery and microsurgery as well as laparoscopic and endoscopic procedures. Bay Medical’s da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System offers patients a less invasive surgical option for certain procedures with dramatically reduced side effects and a quicker recovery. When needed, Bay Medical also offers convenient outpatient surgery with the security of a full-scale hospital’s resources.
Surgical Services nurses are dedicated to providing outstanding quality care to our patients through collaboration with our surgeons, anesthesia providers and other team members. We work in accordance with the recommendations of the Association of Operating Room Nurses with many of our nurses having their CNOR certification.
Within the operating room department, we assign a registered nurse circulator for every procedure. The scrub nurse role may be assumed by an RN or surgical technologist. We also have a designated charge nurse for each specialty service. We have an all-RN nursing staff caring for our post-anestesia care unit patients. Our nursing staff is highly experienced and enjoys excellent collegial relations with our anesthesia providers, surgeons and other members of our multidisciplinary team.
